Parents  who sign up for Tips by Text will receive text messages for about 11 months (around October ’23 through August ’24) with information on how to support their child’s development and kindergarten readiness. The texts are informative and fun, and they take advantage of existing family routines, items around the house, and events in the community.

Free for all parents in San Juan and Gallup-McKinley County.

Parents will get up to $100 in gift cards for participating and taking a few surveys! (More if they refer other parents.)


  • Parents whose children will enter Kindergarten in Fall 2024.
  • Must have a phone capable of receiving text messages.
  • Reside in San Juan and Gallup-McKinley counties
