Spring is such a fun time for family. The weather starts to warm up, the flowers start to bloom, and you can finally spend lots of time outside. It’s a sign of new things to come and breathes some life into our kids (and ourselves). We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful city with so many great things to do. Looking for an activity to mark the start of the new season? We’ve got it all covered here in our Ultimate Guide to Spring in the Albuquerque area.

At Summer @ Menaul, they believe in the value of play. The most important elements of Summer @ Menaul are as follows: physical exercise and relationships, communication and cooperation skills, exploration and curiosity, problem-solving and adaptability, imagination and reflection.
