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, life-long 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.
Our school also features the WatchMeGrow program which gives families the convenience of being able to view their children’s activities in our classrooms in real time on their computer, phone or tablet, with secured access for additional peace of mind.
The safety and health of our students is our number one priority. In the past few months we have have both added and enhanced polices to ensure this continues to be a focus. All of our parents/visitors are required to wear masks. We also perform temperature checks as well as overall health checks on all of our students as they come in each day. Handwashing and daily cleaning remains a priority as well.
We also offer The Prep Lab Workbooks which will address the lost class time that children have experienced across the country. These target critical literacy and math skills, allowing children the opportunity to practice these skills so that they will be better prepared to enter the next grade level in the fall.
