The New Mexico Tiered Quality Rating Improvement System (NMTQRIS) website was created in 2016 as a portal for New Mexico childcare programs to apply for the FOCUS program and/or update their program information.

The Early Childhood Services IT team at the University of New Mexico Division of Continuing Education has primary responsibility for the design and updating of the website, in close consultation with the Office of Child Development, Early Childhood Division of the Children, Youth and Families Department.
