La Puerta de los Ninos

La Puerta de los Ninos La Puerta de los Ninos is a preschool for children 13 months - 8 years serving Albuquerque families. La Puerta was founded in 1971 by a group of women dedicated to providing excellent child care to a widely diverse group of children and families.

Since that time, parents, staff, administration, and the board of directors have strived to continue this tradition of excellence in an atmosphere that is warm and open to all.

Mission: Diversity At La Puerta we strive to celebrate diversity in all forms. As your family participates in our program you and your child will have the chance to learn about and participate in many different cultural traditions and holiday observances. We welcome families to share their cultural traditions with us. Nature Another integral tradition here at La Puerta is fostering a connection with nature. Children today experience a real disconnect from the natural world. At La Puerta, children are given opportunities and encouraged to play outside and garden. We provide toys and activities using natural materials. La Puerta has its own cook who prepares the food for our family style lunches. We also provide milk from a local dairy and meat from a local meat market. We buy organic produce and foods as our budget allows. The children also eat the produce they grow in the gardens. We believe promoting a love of nature promotes healthy and confident children and welcome your support in this mission. Parents Parents are a critical component here at La Puerta. There are many ways for parents to participate in daily classroom activities as well as annual fundraisers. We depend upon parent donations and fundraising to support the rich programs offered to the children and training opportunities and appreciation programs for staff. Please feel free to talk with staff or the Executive Director about ways you can become involved. We welcome your family into our program and look forward to sharing your time together as we work together to provide a high quality child care program for your family and our staff. Feel free to speak with your child’s staff or our Executive Director with any questions or concerns you may have about our program or curriculum. Staff We at La Puerta practice an Open Door policy and welcome feedback from parents. Take a moment to speak with your child(ren)’s teachers or with office staff. Please feel free to arrange a meeting with your child(ren)’s teachers or administration. We welcome the opportunity to work with you to address concerns and integrate feedback to improve our program.

LA PUERTA COVID-19 UPDATE:

Dear La Puerta families:

Our thoughts are with you all during this uncertain time, and we hope you and your loved ones are all safe and staying well! We miss having the opportunity to spend time with your children and the chance to catch a few moments of adult interaction with you.

With the continued uncertainty about how the COVID-19 outbreak will progress, we are unable to make any kind of accurate prediction about when we will reopen. We trust the Governor’s Office to continue to make careful, informed decisions with the wellbeing of all New Mexicans in mind, and plan to follow all requirements and suggestions about when and how to return to business. We are in contact with the Board about any matters that affect the physical and financial health of our community and all its members.

We made the heartbreaking decision to lay off all our employees (including ourselves) at the end of March and have applied for assistance in the hopes that we will be able to resume payroll so that our wonderful, dedicated staff can take care of their own families until they are able to return to work. We have enough money set aside that we can cover our overhead until this crisis is resolved.

It fact, we are delighted to share that our monthly fixed expenses will actually go DOWN, effective this month; after over three years of limbo and endless negotiations, we are closing on the purchase of the Trellis property as our forever home this week! We are so excited about this development and the opportunities it will provide for La Puerta to evolve into a stronger, more inclusive community that will serve Albuquerque’s families for decades to come!

If you did not cancel your automatic tuition payment, we will be emailing you to ask if you would like it held or destroyed. Feel free to email us with any questions or concerns you have! We are dedicated to supporting you and your family in any way we can until we see you again!

With our deepest affection and best wishes,

Sarah and Claire
