TLC Development Centers has four locations offering state funded extended day Pre-K programs:
Our mission at TLC Development Centers is to provide high quality child care, incorporating the best research and knowledge of child development and health. Also, to support parents by providing their children with a loving, nurturing environment; and by being accessible to discuss their children’s needs. The center’s goals are for the children served by the center to develop to their full potential, to exhibit healthy social, emotional, and physical growth; for the parents to feel confident that their children are being cared for in the best possible manner, to promote the natural bonding and friendship among young siblings, to prepare children emotionally, socially, and scholastically for life, and to find the center personnel open and easy to communicate with.
Services for children include:
- a multi-cultural educational program that is driven by the New Mexico Early Learning Guidelines and tailored to children’s individual needs
- fostering self-esteem, and developing cognitive, language, motor and social skills
- hearing and vision screenings
- nutritious meals and snacks eaten in family style settings, along with nutrition education in the classroom and for parents to use at home
Extended Day Pre-K hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 3:30pm. Wrap around care is available at all locations for a separate charge. APS school closings are followed for all Albuquerque PreK Programs. Edgewood Elementary School closings are followed for The Learning Curve.
