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 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.
Our school participates in the Tech and Tinker program for our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms! This program combines 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’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

I found my love for working with children very young and have worked in the education field for 25 years. I enjoy being directly involved with my students learning and building relationships with each family. As a leader, I l love being able to develop and support the teachers at La Petite Academy.

I have 29 years of experience in early education and I've also owned my own educational child care 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!
