After more than thirty years of experience, we use a combination of the Applebaum curriculum and the Sunlight Kids Bible teaching from Gospel Publishing House, which is used for the daily chapel time. Because we recognize that kids learn through play, discovery, and hands-on activities, we provide a wide variety of experiences to allow the children to learn in these environments.
Our schedule each day is designed to nurture the children in our care to grow developmentally. We include breakfast, morning snack, lunch, and an afternoon snack. Between these meal-times, we work with the students on their mathematics skills, teaching them number recognition and to count up to fifty. We also teach phonics, beginning reading, and letter recognition for pre-reading skills. Additionally, we plan activities to teach children about our social surroundings and early science concepts. Through all of this, we encourage the children to develop both their fine and gross motor skills.
We are currently a Three-STARS daycare. This rating comes from the New Mexico CYFD Look for the STARS Quality Rating System. This rating system shows the standard of quality that we are at, and because we verified for our third star, this shows that we have increased in the quality of service we are giving to you and your families.
We are a participant in the FOCUS program, run by the Children Youth and Families Department of New Mexico. This program provides our staff with the criteria, tools, and resources that will help us to improve the quality of our programs. These improvements focus on the growth, development, and learning of each the children in our care. Altogether, the materials provided through the FOCUS program are designed to ensure that many more children from birth through age five have access to dramatically improved early learning programs so that they enter school with the skillls, knowledge, and dispositions they need to be successful. Through the use of a program improvement and quality rating system, early learning programs will increase their ability to focus on children's learning, improve their practice, and as a result of that improvement in practice, improved each childs' kindergarten readiness.
We are also involved with the Children and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), a program of the USDA,through which we recieve help to give your children healthy meals through out the day.

Our mission is to fulfill the mission of the church which is to love God, love others, and to live it. In addition to this, the mission of this particular ministry of the church is threefold:
Our Mission will be achieved through providing a variety of activities that are developmentally appropriate while recognizing the individual needs and differences of the children.
