If you’re looking for a special preschool, you’ve come to the right place! Ashley’s Garden offers an exceptional program steeped in play and fun. First, Ashley’s Garden provides a safe, secure, nurturing environment for all children, as we know this need must be met first. Once secure, children are ready to explore, learn, and develop the skills necessary to succeed in school (kindergarten readiness).

Distinguished for its learning foundations, Ashley’s Garden provides an exceptionally rich environment designed to promote the ease of learning through our Montessori-based curriculum which includes exploring literacy, numeracy, science, music and art.  Ashley’s Garden knows childhood is a special time of exploration, growth and adventure. These are the precious years of learning that lay the foundation for the future. Experts consider these to be the most important years for growth and development, and Ashley’s Garden was designed to fulfill and exceed these needs.

Ashley's Garden Preschool

A preparatory preschool specializing in 3-5 year olds

Years of research into child development and early learning show that educational readiness depends on seven interrelated developmental domains which are set forth in the New Mexico Early Learning Guidelines and the accompanying Essential Indicators. 

  • Motor Development

  • Physical well-being

  • Social Development

  • Language Development

  • Basic Knowledge & Skills

Current research has shown that movement and learning are intimately connected and that complex movement helps prepare, organize and develop the brain for what we term “higher learning”. In addition to the ‘process of learning’, complex movement has also been shown to be connected to the development of the brain’s ‘executive function’ which has been shown to be associated with academic success. Integrative movement has been shown to affect the following: 

  • Focus/Attention

  • Language

  • Concentration

  • Reading

  • Problem Solving

  • Writing

  • Speech

  • Behavior

  • Abstract Thought

  • Math

Thank you for taking the time to consider Ashley’s Garden for your preschooler’s education. The goal of our program is to focus on your child’s development, growth and learning; and, to provide the greatest opportunity for success in kindergarten and later school years. We support the full participation of every child through curriculum components that address dual language learners while exposing the children to sign language and various cultures from the world.   We believe parents/families are the first and most prominent teachers in the children’s lives; therefore, as parents/families you will be asked to participate in the development of goals (inside and outside the classroom) for your child.
