Ashley’s Garden (PreK and Early Prek) are four-star programs that focus on child development, growth, and learning to provide the greatest opportunity for success in kindergarten and later school years. Our Montessori-based curriculum utilizes a multi-sensory approach to learning—incorporating a comprehensive array of integrative movement activities and special programs which support NM PreK Early Learning Outcomes. We support the full participation of every child through curriculum components that address dual language learners while exposing the children to sign language and various cultures from the world. The curriculum is theme-based with emphasis on learning through play and the development of positive social relationships, which leads to the development of academic skills. Extracurricular activities (gymnastics, yoga, dance, creative movement and S’Cool Moves™) are used to promote integrative movement. Our program accepts enrollees from Title l schools within the Las Cruces Public School district. Children must be 3 years old by September 1 to be eligible for the Early PreK and 4 years old by September 1 for the PreK.
