Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Bernalillo, NM, serving families in Bernalillo, Placitas, Rio Rancho and Algadones. My name is Esther and I am the academy director. I have my Child Development Associate credential and my National Administrative credential. I also have 34 years of experience as a teacher and manager.
We offer Infant Care, which includes premium diapers and wipes. We also offer Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs, as well as Before- and After-school care for school-age children. We service the following schools--Carroll & Bernalillo, Placitas and Vista Grande Elementary Schools.
We remain committed to doing everything possible to support our community. That starts with a healthy, safe environment for your child when they're away from home. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment.
For parents, we have a mobile app, brightwheel which offers daily updates of your child including photos and videos. 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 is 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 staff is dedicated to our children and families - together they have 42 years of experience. Our learning center creates a family-oriented environment by hosting family events and maintaining an open-door policy.
Plus, we are offering The Prep Lab. This program supports school-age students and their families as they face 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.
