Kids Corner is a privately owned preschool with extended care serving San Juan County since 1996.  


Admission:

Kids Corner Learning Center has a variety of academic and developmentally appropriate early childhood learning programs for children ranging 6 weeks through 12 years of age. Kids Corner Learning Center is an open-door policy facility licensed through the State of New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department and abides by all of its rules and regulations.


Operating Hours:

Kids Corner Learning Center is open from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for your convenience. Full-time rates reflect usage up to 10 hours per day. 


Flexible scheduling:

Parents are allowed flexibility in scheduling. You may schedule your children full-time, part-time or occasionally for your convenience. Parents need to enroll their children for specific day/times in advance and are responsible for payment of those reserved positions. The exception to this rule is the “occasional child.” In this instance, the parent can call Kids Corner to see if there are any positions available on a weekly, daily or hourly basis. All children must be registered in advance and must comply with the Department of Health Services regulations in regard to immunizations.


MISSION STATEMENT

Kids Corner Learning Center’s focus is based on the process of learning and helping children ages 6 weeks through 12 years enjoy successful experiences. We provide developmentally appropriate programs for all families throughout San Juan County.

PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

We believe each child is a unique individual. We are sensitive to their social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs. We desire to strengthen each child’s own cultural identity, while instilling a respect for others who may be different.


Our programs are designed to develop in children a sense of independence and responsibility. While children learn through play, Kids Corner encourages children the opportunity to explore, to experience and most importantly…to succeed with teacher-directed activities as well as child-directed activities. Classrooms and imaginative centers are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices with a multiple range of developmental levels. We also provide your child with a program that will enhance their academic skills for future preparation to attend public or private school.


We believe parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life. We strive to create mutual respect between parents and teachers; a partnership for the benefit of the child. We encourage daily communication between parents and Kids Corner staff. We do not require parent participation, however, we encourage parents to ask questions and enjoy our open door policy.


We believe in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy and oriented to children. By providing such an environment allows the child to feel safe and comfortable, who encourages them the freedom to explore their world and their immediate surroundings. We believe in positive methods of discipline. We establish consistent, developmentally appropriate limits to help children function and be successful.
