  • How are your tuition rates justified? La Luz ECC is a private, not for profit, early childhood learning center. There are very few centers in the Albuquerque area that are not subsidized, whether by a church, a corporation or educational facility. According to the NAEYC, "good care is expensive. It is very important that each caregiver not be overwhelmed by too many children to care for at one time. Limiting the number of children per adult ensures that young children get the close adult supervision and attention they need to learn and to thrive, particularly during the time they spend outside of the home." Additionally, "the average child care program relies on parent fees for as much as 90% of the budget. Consequently, the number of personnel, the equipment and other quality improvements can be enhanced only at the expense of raising parent fees. At La Luz ECC, we hire only professionals and thus pay them as such. This is to ensure the highest quality of care for your child(ren). According to statistics, the average child care worker in Bernalillo County earned $13,637 per year (based upon a 12 month year) in 2000 (the last year in which statistics were available). In comparison, the average teacher, for both elementary and secondary schools, in Bernalillo Count earned $25,744 per year (based upon a 9 month year) in 2000 and the average Bernalillo County worker, for all industries, earned $29,167 in 2000. These figures are from the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics.
