Early Childhood Education

A variety of Early Childhood Programs are available to young children who live within the boundaries of the Los Lunas Schools District. All elementary schools in the district have at least one early childhood program for our young learners. Los Lunas Schools is a participant of the Public Education Department's FOCUS program.

"Through funding from the New Mexico Public Education Department, the Early Childhood Learning Network (ECLN) supports the development and implementation of FOCUS-a tiered quality rating and improvement system. FOCUS will be utilized by all public school preschools (PreK, Special Education,  and Title I) To evaluate the quality of educational services provided to young children ages 3-5 and their families." (FOCUS Webpage)

There are three preschool programs currently implemented in the Los Lunas Schools. 

  • Early Childhood Special Education Preschool Program is for children ages 3-5 who demonstrate a need and meet the criteria for special education preschool. Students in the Early Childhood Special Education Preschool Program have individualized education plans and my receive ancillary therapy or therapies.
  • New Mexico PreK is a voluntary preschool program created by the Pre-Kindergarten Act of 2005. Children who have reached their 4th birthday by September 1st are eligible to attend a PreK program. The purpose of PreK is to ensure every child in New Mexico has the opportunity to attend a high quality early childhood education program before kindergarten. (New Mexico Public Education Website

  • The Peer Model Program is designed for preschool children whose families are seeking a readiness program for their child prior to kindergarten. These students are role models for students participating in the Early Childhood Special Education Preschool Program. Children selected for the Peer Model Program are screened and must demonstrate age appropriate social, adaptive, speech and language, fine motor and gross motor skills. They must be toilet trained.
