Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Plus, for elementary school students, The Prep Lab offers distance learning support, STEM projects, and more, on a flexible schedule—including a full-day option.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy, a nationally-accredited educational daycare in Albuquerque, NM. My name is Candice and I am the academy director. I have over 18 years of experience as well as a CDA and NAC.

We provide care for children six weeks to 12 years of age through our Infant Care, Preschool and other early education programs. We serve the communities of the Southwest side of Albuquerque near the West Mesa area. During the school year (August - May) we also offer the free New Mexico Pre-K Grant Program from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

We have new technology in our school-age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding and more!

We have put into place extra safety protocols in order to keep our children and families safe. Some of these are all staff members wear face masks throughout their day at work, parent/guardians wear face mask upon drop off and pick up, taking temperatures of everyone that comes into our building and increasing the sanitation in the classrooms.

For school age children, we also offer The Prep Lab Workbooks which will address the lost class time that children have experienced across the country. These target critical literacy and math skills, allowing children the opportunity to practice these skills so that they will be better prepared to enter the next grade level in the fall.

COMING SOON: We’re excited to share that this fall, our school will offer WatchMeGrow live video streaming! WatchMeGrow gives you secure access to view your child’s classroom in real time while your child is in our care – either from a computer or via mobile app.

If you are looking for an education-driven child care in Albuquerque, NM, I welcome you to stop by La Petite Academy for a tour to see how much we have to offer!
