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.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Albuquerque, NM, located in the Paradise Hills area off of New Vistas Court. My name is Monica and I am the school administrator. I have 23 years of experience as a teacher and manager.

Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs, as well as Before- And After-School care for school-age children. Our Before-And After-School program provides transportation to and from Ventana, Sierra Vista, 7 Bar, Petroglyph, and Sunset View Elementary. We also provide care for all out of school days following Albuquerque Public School schedule.

We are nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Programs Accreditation and have been awarded a Star V level rating with New Mexico State Licensing for Daycare Standards. The majority of our staff members have more than 10 years of experience and they receive more than 24 hours of training each year.

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.

Our school also uses a brightwheel app to receive updates about your child throughout the day.

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.

Our school participates in the Tech and Tinker program for our preschool and pre-k classrooms! This Program combine hands-on exploration with digital tools to help children develop the essential skills to navigate their 21st Century future. Children have iPads with educational apps, our Preschool class has an Inspire Plus interactive table, and our Pre-K class features a STEM Lab with learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We are offering an elective for our Pre-K students that is called Spotlight on Kinder.

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.

Please call our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Albuquerque, NM to schedule a tour today. We look forward to meeting your family!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
The staff teacher are all great.
Overall, this school has been everything to us!! My daughter started at La Petite for daycare at 3 months old and now she's in 4th grade @ Mountain View Private Academy!! She's never been anywhere else, we love love love everything about and everyone at La Petite/Mountain View!!!
Outstanding teachers, caregivers and staff. Excellent curriculum in an inviting environment.
Ms. Hunter and Ms. Temple are amazing. They promote parent involvement through several activities at the school. I feel like all of the staff is very engaged with the kids. I like the structure and the focus on my daughter’s development.
All the staff is always super friendly and they greet my child by name. I always know what is happening.
They have been nothing but professional and loving. Spencer has always loved his teachers. Thank you for taking care of our child so well!
I love the way they love my autistic daughter
Most amazing experience by far. We switched from public school and it was the best decision I have ever made. My child has flourished here and is much more confident in himself. He had made friends and gained self esteem in communication and being himself. The staff is wonderful in every way. We feel at home there. I’m confident dropping my child off everyday and trust them 100 percent. Everyone is
always friendly and my child looks forward to going to school even during breaks!

I love how my child is loved on from the moment she walks in the door. My child has never interacted with other adults outside of our home the way she has with her teachers and the love she has for them in return is what makes it worth the price I have to pay to keep her enrolled at La Petite. Not to mention her growth academically, she has learned so much in a short amount of time and to hear her
come home counting higher than she normally can, pointing out new colors and shapes around her, impresses me more everyday. We love La Petite and couldn't imagine being anywhere else.

I absolutely love all of the teachers here. They are caring understanding and full heartedly committed to my daughters education. The director of the school was our first impression. And we fell in love with the first moment. We felt so welcomed. Would definitely recommend the school to everyone!
