Governor Bent Pre-K is located at 5100 Hendrix NE at the site of Governor Bent Elementary School. We are near the southeast corner of Montgomery and San Pedro. The elementary school principal and staff have been very supportive of our efforts to provide a continuum of educational service to families in their community. Our experienced staff is dedicated to providing quality services for our young students. We work with the whole family to provide meaningful learning experiences for everyone. We are sensitive to the diverse backgrounds of our families and work to build a partnership with each family to help the children learn and grow.
Our yearly program will begin in the fall and ends the following July. Our calendar schedule is not the same as the Albuquerque Public Schools because we are part of the City of Albuquerque’s Division of Child and Family Development Services. All children enrolled in Pre-K attend our year-round program. We can offer parents who are working or going to school wrap-around childcare services before or after Pre-K sessions, which are paid for by families on a sliding fee scale. Times for wrap around services will be determined by family work or school schedules. Our Pre-K program strives to provide quality care and education in a safe learning environment that is child-centered with a developmentally appropriate curriculum which includes early literacy, thinking, reasoning, problem solving, fine and gross motor development, language and communication skills, creative development and social-emotional competency.
