Kids Under Construction, Inc. (KUCI) provides exceptional child care and early childhood education for children ages two to five years old (Pre-K only). As an outreach ministry of St. Stephen’s United Methodist Church, we are committed to providing Biblically based and developmentally appropriate preschool program in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment. Each one of our highly qualified and trained staff meets the requirements of state regulations for the operation of a Preschool and Day Care. In addition, KUCI is fully accredited through the Association of Christian Schools International. KUCI has a five-star license with the State of New Mexico and is regulated by the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department.
We believe that all children are unique with God-given talents. They are capable and competent and learn best through integrated learning which spans across subject and developmental domains. Children can be taught to problem-solve, regulate behaviors, and think creatively in order to succeed in a complex and changing world. We use purposeful play informed by biblically-based, developmentally appropriate research to create the learning experience. A balance of teacher-guided instruction and child initiated exploration is used to enable a child to learn at his/her own rate.
