Welcome to our La Petite Academy in Albuquerque, NM. My name is Theresa and I am the Academy Director of this 5-Star, NAEYC-Accredited Academy which offers care for Infants, Preschool, School-Age programs and the NM Pre-K program. I have more than 20 years of experience in early childhood education and hold an associate's degree in office administration.
I am confident that we offer the best programs in the area because of our wonderful staff with tenures of over 20 years! My teachers stay current on the latest in early childhood development, health and safety by attending monthly training sessions and holding current First Aid and CPR cards.
In addition to our high standards of education and care, we provide a secure building with a front door featuring a key pad entry system, a manager is always onsite, and we check photo IDs of persons picking children up. We also offer diapers and wipes for children included in tuition.
Health and Safety are essential to us, they come first. We know that being apart from your child can be a challenge. That's why we want to make sure you feel connected throughout the day. With our new WatchMeGrow Technology, you'll be able to view your child's activities in the classroom on any smartdevice or computer. We are thrilled to offer this new, free service to our families.
The Prep Lab is designed to keep school-agers on course with their studies. In the summer, we'll prepare children in grades K-5 for the next grade by providing academic experiences in math and literacy, bringing added excitement and learning opportunities to our fun camp themes. During the school year, teachers will work to support students with their distance learning needs.
We offer transportation to three public elementary schools: Dennis Chavez, EG Ross and North Star. Call today to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Albuquerque, NM!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
