Our mission is to offer a child-centered, learning environment providing developmentally appropriate care and education in a nurturing atmosphere designed to foster your child’s social, physical and cognitive growth.
Our program provides a loving, attentive environment in order to give each child an emotional base, while providing a varied, flexible curriculum with opportunities for large and small muscle development, open-ended art exploration, science, puzzles, blocks, dancing and music, pretend play, and lots of books. Children will be able to make choices, solve problems and learn to be responsible for their actions.
Our children stay together as a class, with their teachers, for the first three years before moving to preschool then Pre-K. Children are placed in their classes by their date of birth. We do not promote children upon their birthday but rather classes stay together for the full school year. Continuity of care is one of the cornerstones of our program. We use September 1st as our cut off date, just as Albuquerque Public Schools does. Classes are grouped as follows: Infants (at least 6 weeks of age); Young Toddlers (1 as of September 1st); Older Toddlers (2 as of September 1st; Preschool (3 as of September 1st); Pre-K (4 as of September 1st).
We are always searching for teachers looking for work on an on-call basis. Would work well for someone not looking for an everyday job. Subs are used in every class, with every age level, so experience is a MUST. You must also have your 45 hour class taken at a minimum. Please call for more information.
