Welcome to Our School

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. 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. 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 new technology in our preschool and pre-k classrooms! 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.

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
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!
Very flexible with our schedule. Staff is always happy to see my daughters.
The school has facilitated the mental and social development of my daughter.
