Welcome to Our School

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.

Call today to schedule a tour and see why our La Petite Academy is the foremost early childhood education and care provider in Albuquerque, NM.

Here's what people have to say

4.7 out of 5 stars
Great place to take your children. Highly recommend it. Four of my kids attend La Petite and wouldn't take them any where else.
Absolutely love it! The teachers are amazing and my children love going to school!
All the employees are caring, loving, and professional.
Staff are professional, attentive and practice good communication skills. Very satisfied!
I absolutely love La Petite. I feel nothing but absolute confidence in the care my kids get during the day.
We have been very happy with our child's participation here. The teachers are all warm, responsive, and caring. They engage with our son, and with us as parents. Our son enjoys coming to school, and feels like he is part of a community. When there have been behavioral issues or concerns, the teachers and administrators have taken our concerns seriously and addressed them. We think this school provides
a great value for the price, and we are happy to continue having our son attend.

I absolutely love La Petite. The teachers are amazing. They seem to really like the kids. And the kids look happy. I’m extremely happy with the care.
I have had a great experience. The baby teachers are great.
I've had an overall great experience. I have been on both sides as a parent and as a teacher and I don't think I will switch my kids to any other daycare. I have changed my whole life around to make sure they can stay at this center.
Has been really good. Teachers are great with my baby.
