Thank you for visiting our NAEYC-Accredited La Petite Academy educational daycare in Albuquerque, NM! My name is Kelly and I am the director. I have worked in child care for 34 years as a teacher and manager.
At this school we offer Infant Care, Preschool and other age-appropriate programs. I strive to create a warm, welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan monthly events for all to participate in and work hard to ensure our families meet each other and develop strong relationships as well.
All of our staff members complete 24 hours of training per year, as well as monthly training provided here on site. In addition to staff background checks that are completed on each associate, our school has a security door with a keypad that is accessible only with a code. We maintain a visitor log for all people that do not have an access code and identification is checked, as well. We also have cameras in all of our classrooms, on our playgrounds and in our parking lot for the safety of our children, families and staff!
We are pleased to announce that we now offer Grow Fit Yoga and Spotlight on Spanish to our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten children. Each class is two times a week and is taught by two of our teachers. Please see a manager for details!
One of the many benefits we offer is diapers and wipes which are included for the younger classes! No more worrying about running out!
We do offer before and after school transportation to 5 different elementary schools. Please call the school for details.
In this day and age, parents want to be connected with their child 24/7 and we hear you!! We utilize a mobile app in each classroom that will keep you connected! Please call us today for details!

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
