Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Rio Rancho, NM. We are located off of Highway 528 and Sara Road near Intel. My name is Tiffany and I'm the Academy Director of this school for Infant Care, Preschool and other age-appropriate options. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and my Child Development Associate Certification, as well as more than 15 years in the field.

Our academy was established in 1994 and our teachers take great pride presenting Rio Rancho with the highest caliber of child care and early education. About a third of our staff has been with us for more than three years and they stay current with monthly training sessions and ongoing training offered by the state.

Our purpose is to empower children to acquire the skills they will need to become creative problem solvers, lifelong learners, and responsible members of the community.

Our school is equipped with a security entry system to protect the children in our care. The system ensures that only people with access will be allowed to enter the school. We are proud to say that our center is nationally accredited and that we have achieved a five-star rating in New Mexico's Look for the STARS program.

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.
