Established in 1971 as an outreach of the First Presbyterian Church of Albuquerque, A Child’s Garden Preschool (ACG) has remained one of the premier preschools in the state. ACG was the first preschool in New Mexico to be accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and has continued to be at the forefront of early childhood education and advocacy for nearly 50 years. We are also Five Star Accredited by New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department. Approximately 140 children are welcomed at A Child’s Garden each day. Our highly qualified, diverse and caring teachers and staff support the children’s learning, growth and development in a non-faith-based environment.
Our program is focused on the whole child. We believe children learn through play. Our curriculum is emergent, hands-on, inspired by children and relationship based.
