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 Associates 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 have the brighweel mobile app for daily photos, videos, and updates. Plus, we are excited to launch soon the new WatchMeGrow program. WatchMeGrow gives families the opportunity to view their child's activities in their classroom in real time through secured access on your computer, phone, or tablet. Never miss a moment away from your child again.
We are also offering The Prep Lab. This program supports school-age students and their families as they face any challenges and changes in their local school district this upcoming school year, with flexible scheduling and even a full-day option. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies.
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.

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 creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
