Little Flower Learning Center (LFLC) has been serving the southeast community for over 50 years. LFLC is a non-profit childcare center licensed by the State of New Mexico. Little Flower serves children ages 6 weeks through 12 years of age. Our operating hours are from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday with the exception of certain holidays as listed in the yearly schedule.
LFLC’s mission is to provide a quality, family-oriented, bilingual early childhood program that emphasizes problem-solving and communication skills through developmentally appropriate learning environments.
Our goal is that children who graduate from Little Flower will do so with a love of learning and strong communication, creativity and problem-solving skills that allow them to mediate, navigate and strategize successfully in the variety of environments they will encounter.
Little Flower believes that children learn through play with a balance of adult-guided and child- guided activities. By providing activities and experiences that promote and enhance children’s social, emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual development, children can feel comfortable in their surroundings. This builds positive self-esteem, allows them to become confident explorers and learners and develops skills and abilities needed as they grow into responsible individuals. Little Flower Learning Center believes that all children have the right to learn in an environment that is non-restrictive and stress free environment placing a daily emphasis on meeting the needs of and understanding where each child is developmentally.
Little Flower recognizes that all children develop at different rates and that each child has his or her own unique, individual needs and cultural backgrounds. We welcome and embrace these qualities and model a respect for all.
Children learn through play and everyday life experiences; therefore, it is important to have classrooms that foster learning through hands on developmentally appropriate activities.
We believe that parents are a child’s first and primary teacher and that early childhood educators are an extension of that process. It is our responsibility to support and empower parents to make that lasting difference in their child’s life.
Our staff of caring professionals are committed to meeting each child’s individual needs by providing positive guidance, love and nurturing support throughout the day
