Welcome to La Petite Academy 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.
Our location services school-age children through our private accredited elementary school. We host many family events and maintain an open-door policy. The building is equipped with a secured entry system so we are able to maintain safety while allowing parents and guardians to visit during business hours. Our school also uses an Brightwheel app to receive updates about your child throughout the day. The majority of our staff members have more than 10 years of experience and they receive more than 24 hours of training each year.
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 prek students that is called Spotlight on Kinder.

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
