There will be new early education programs for New Mexico children next year.

Gov. Susana Martinez says the state education department will be able to expand pre-kindergarten programs next year.

It will also be able to fund all 40 of the existing programs across the state.

State lawmakers provided more than $4 million dollars for the program during the last session.
