Nye Early Childhood Center is dedicated to educational programming for three- and four-year-old children. Nye’s preschool program provides half-day services for children who are three years old (or will turn three during the school year and identified with a disability) and four-year-olds with disabilities. Teachers and staff are highly qualified to work with and educate children identified with special needs.

The Nye program is guided by NM FOCUS: Essential Elements of Quality for Public Education Department (PED) Preschool Programs (PreK, Special Education and Title I). FOCUS places emphasis on quality improvements that focus on children’s growth, development and learning so that each child has an equitable opportunity to be successful when entering kindergarten.
