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 moviemaking, robots for coding and more!
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.
