5 Star Certification
Jardin de los Niños has obtained a Five-Star rating from the New Mexico FOCUS program. The program was developed as a means of creating and sustaining an early learning system that focuses on building high-quality, comprehensive community programs that form a continuum of integrated services. This means that children receive the highest possible care available in the industry. The New Mexico program is a widely respected one, and incorporates specific elements of quality that we feel are essential to the continued growth and development of our precious children.
2015 NonProfit of the Year
2014 Non-Profit of the year
In December 2014, Jardin de los Niños was named the "Non-Profit of the Year" by the Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce. This was a huge accomplishment for our organization and we are very excited for our future growth.
Going forward, it is Jardin’s goal to become fully sustainable, and become a model non-profit throughout New Mexico. It is also our intent to obtain 5-Star Accreditation through the New Mexico Children Youth and Families Department’s FOCUS Program. While Jardin presently has 5-Star Accreditation at a National Level, it is important for us to obtain this accreditation through the state. It is our intent, as we become more financially stable, to increase the number of children we serve throughout the region. It is also our intent to be actively involved in the community, so that our citizens know, understand and support our program.
