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 Connie and I'm the academy director of this school for Infant Care, Preschool and other age-appropriate options. I have a bachelor's degree, my National Administrators Credential and more than 20 years of experience as a director.

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, life-long learners, and responsible members of the community. Our mission is to support the growth of each child traveling on the School Readiness Pathway, which provides a portfolio of educational programs set on a continuum specifically designed to meet a child's individual needs.

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.
