Childcare Offerings

Our low-cost childcare is available upon request. To request childcare for your class, please read below then email us and let us know the number and age of children attending. Requests must be made at least one week before the class.

We at Old School want as many people as possible to access our teachers and their expertise. At first, we offered free childcare for all classes held at the Albuquerque Mennonite Church. Now, under a new budget intended to keep us afloat, we are subsidizing low-cost childcare. See why, here.

Here’s what we ask:
$4/hr for one child
$5/hr for two children
$6/hr for three children
add $2 for each additional child

This helps us pay all our expenses including teachers and our childcare-givers. Once childcare has been requested, we secure a sitter promising at least $10 an hour. If you request childcare and then decide to not bring your child, you are still responsible for the childcare payment. Otherwise, we end up paying for a sitter that isn’t necessary and that takes away from Old School’s ability to offer such inexpensive classes with such awesome teachers!

We hire trustworthy moms and college students to provide childcare at the church, which is equipped with a daycare facility and a playground. On weekdays, when the preschool is in service, children with parents in classes can run around in child-safe sanctuary or side classroom. Classes are held just a hop away from where kids are playing so any issues can be quickly addressed.

We keep the number of children in the childcare to five.
