Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Albuquerque, NM! We are located in the Ladera shopping center. My name is Orlina and I am the director. I have an associate's degree in early childhood education and more than 30 years of experience as a teacher and manger.
We are accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation and our school offers preschool, pre-kindergarten and other age-specific programs.
I run my learning center like everyone involved is a part of my family. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open door policy for everyone. We plan lots of fun activities for our children and families to help build strong relationships.
I am fortunate to have a staff that loves their children and is dedicated to making sure they have a great experience at school. All staff is required to receive 30 hours of ongoing training throughout the year.
Please schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Albuquerque, NM, today! We look forward to meeting your family and introducing you to ours!
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Literacy
We’ve been recognized as a high-quality early education program.
Education: Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education
I have worked in early childhood over 30 years. I also taught Kindergarten for about two years. I have four boys and 13 grandchildren. I have worked for La Petite for about 23 years and I love all the hugs I get from the children!

I've been with La Petite now for 10 years, seven years as a teacher in all the classrooms and three years as assistance director. La Petite helped and guided me over the years and I'm blessed to be here. I love what I do and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
