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!

I have 29 years experience in early education and I've also owned my own educational childcare business. I enjoy seeing the children grow, become successful, and develop a love for learning. It is important to me to make sure that every child in my care has a chance at a successful career in school. My early math and literacy training is a great attribute to La Petite Academy as part of our NAEYC programming. I love to continue to learn and grow, too!
