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 are taking added safety precautions to ensure the health and welfare of our children, staff and parents. Temperatures are taken upon arrival and departure, equipment is sanitized daily and parents use hand sanitizer before they use the kiosk to check their child in and out.
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!
Coming soon, parents will be able to view via video streaming their child during our hours of operation with WatchMeGrow. Plus, we offer the brightwheel mobile app in each classroom that will keep you connected with daily updates.
We do offer before and after school transportation to 5 different elementary schools and with the new plan being implemented by APS, we will support children's virtual school learning here. The Prep Lab helps families faced with any challenges and changes in their local school district this upcoming school year, with flexible scheduling and even a full-day option. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies.
Schedule a tour of our fantastic La Petite Academy educational child care center in Albuquerque, NM today! We look forward to meeting your family.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
