Welcome to La Petite Academy in Rio Rancho, NM!

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Rio Rancho, NM. My name is DeAnn and I am the director. I have my CDA and nine years of experience with La Petite Academy.

Our school was established in 1982 and provides Rio Rancho with first rate child care and early childhood education in our preschool and other age-specific programs. We are currently a five star nationally accredited center.

We are like a family at La Petite Academy and strive to make our center a warm and welcoming environment for our families. We have an open-door policy for anyone who has questions, concerns, or would just like to talk. We plan monthly events for families to meet each other and develop strong relationships as well.

One of the most rewarding things I hear as a director is when a child is telling his parents he had so much fun and can't wait to come back and play with his friends and see his teachers. We are very fortunate at our center to have a caring staff dedicated to our children and families. Over half of our staff have five or more years of experience. As a whole center we have more than 100 of experience and 1,600 hours of training! Our staff receive training on a regular basis to maintain licensing regulations. Also all of our lead teacher have recieved their CDA.

We value the relationships we have with our families and work hard to maintain them. We offer a weekly music class for anyone who wants to join. We also have monthly family events including Family Game Night!
