Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare and preschool in Albuquerque, NM! My name is Monica and I am the academy director here at our 5-Star Uptown location. I have more than 12 years of experience working with children, as well as a Child Development Associate and an associate's degree in early childhood.
Our school provides the community with exceptional child care and education starting with our Infant program, through our School-Age program. At our school we provide a safe, secure environment for all children in our care.
We are a participant in New Mexico's Look for the STARS quality rating system, and have earned a 5 STAR rating. We are also nationally accredited through NAEYC. All of our teachers are dedicated education professionals who take pride in providing a range of opportunities for children to explore, learn, and grow. Our educational programs are designed to meet each child's individual developmental needs.
Our teachers are trained to carefully create lesson plans based on observations, needs and interests. On average, our teachers have been with La Petite Academy for over five years and all are First Aid and CPR certified.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
