PB&J Family Services is a NM Pre-Kindergarten site located in the South Valley of Albuquerque, New Mexico. PB&J is a 5 Star, NAEYC accredited program providing high quality educational services to a classroom of 20 children. Children attend Monday-Thursday from 9:00-3:00pm. Transportation is offered and available to all children enrolled in Pre-K.
PB&J’s mission is to help at risk children to grow and develop to their full potential in nurturing families within a supportive community.
PB&J’s philosophy focuses efforts on the family as a unit, as well as on individual family members. This approach takes into account the powerful and unique reciprocal relationship between parent and child, and the impact they have on one another. PB&J believes by enhancing the family member’s-sense of self-worth and competency, this will strengthen each individual’s ability to develop as a capable and responsible citizen of our community.
We follow the Creative Curriculum-a research based, developmentally appropriate curriculum that maximizes opportunities for preschool children’s learning through play and other hands-on activities. The creative curriculum classroom follows a consistent daily routine which incorporates a large amount of time for children to engage in natural play while adults interact with them to challenge their thinking and further their development.
