Welcome to our La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Albuquerque, NM! My name is Rhiannon and I am the Academy Director. I have an Associate's degree in Early Childhood Education and ten years of experience working with children. I have also obtained a Master Trainer I status for the state of New Mexico.
What I love the most about being the director of our school for Infant Care and Preschool is interacting with the children and their families on a daily basis. I am also proud to work with my talented teachers. Currently, over 50 percent of them have been teaching at our school for three years or longer.
We are excited to share two new features that we have coming soon to La Petite. First, WatchMeGrow is live video streaming that our parents will soon have the benefit of enjoying. This app allows parents to view live video of their child's classroom and keep them in touch with their day. Second, is The Prep Lab feature exclusively for school age students. This will help support them in their upcoming distance learning requirements and still provide character-developing activities from our My Best Self! curriculum.
During these unprecedented times we strive to maintain our safety protocols which include but are not limited to: all staff and children over the age of 3 years wearing face coverings, daily temperature checks of staff, children and families upon drop off and pick up as well as cleaning and sanitizing procedures throughout the day.
I have a very strong relationship with this large La Petite family - the children, parents and teachers. I maintain a safe, welcoming and friendly environment with an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk.
If you are looking for an educational daycare in Albuquerque, NM, then I welcome you to come in for a tour of our La Petite Academy to see how much we have to offer.
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

We’ve been recognized as a high-quality early education program.

I come from a very family-oriented background and being able to work with children and share that with them is amazing. I love singing throughout our school to spread joy and positivity.

I have been in the early childhood field for 13 years and have loved connecting with the children. I enjoy doing arts and crafts with the children to gauge their development. I love having the ability to encourage the development of young minds that shape our future.
