Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational Academy in Albuquerque, NM. My name is Theresa and I am the 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 18 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 offer transportation to three public elementary schools: Dennis Chavez, EG Ross and North Star.

The staff is genuine and always thinking of your child's best interests.
I love the staff they are awesome!
Mrs. Theresa has a strong morale in her school. The teachers are attentive and respectful to the parents and the children. I feel La Petite has been a vital role in raising my children to be enthusiastic about learning. I can confidently say that La Petite holds the highest standards for child care. I am comfortable In trusting them with my children.
I love La Petite. Theresa is a great director. The assistant director and Crystal are wonderful. The teachers are wonderful as well. I have had my kids in La Petite since they were very little at other locations. I plan to put my 3 month old in as well when I go back to work. I wont go to any other childcare care provider.
Several years ago, our first child attended this facility and the care was excellent. Now that our second child is there, I see that it has maintained that level of excellence in all areas and they have made great improvements(more staff, brightwheel app to communicate, and more playground equipment.) Our family is very pleased with the overall care and education our children have received at this
La Patite location!
