Little Playmates first opened on March 17, 1970 in Las Cruces, New Mexico with seven children. Little Playmates has now expanded to six convenient locations serving nearly five hundred children. Little Playmates is a fully licensed day care facility that believes in pairing education with fun and exciting activities. We are always happy to show your child the attention and care he or she deserves and will always help them develop and learn new skills. Little Playmates has been nationally accredited by NAEYC since the early 1990’s and has a five star license from the State of New Mexico. Little Playmates is a fun and safe environment for your children to learn and grow. It is important for us to build a trusting relationship with children and parents alike. Experienced staff keep a clean nurturing environment that keeps generations of families returning. We are committed to providing each and every child that comes through our door with a safe and fun environment and aim to offer the highest quality child care services.

Our Goals:


  • To provide excellent programs that develop the child physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually.
