Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare and preschool in Albuquerque, NM! We are located in the Ladera shopping center. My name is Orlina and I am the school 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 a lot 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.
