Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Rio Rancho, NM. We are located across the street from Rio Rancho Police Department on Quantum Road. My name is Sofia and I have been with La Petite for over 25 years.

We offer Infant and Toddler Care, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs. We also offer Before- and After-School care for School-Age children. Our school is nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation and we also hold a 5-STAR license from the State of New Mexico.

All teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state. We have several CDA-certified teachers and all staff must clear a thorough background check. We have a keypad entry system and only staff and families with secure codes can enter our building without staff assistance.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

We value relationships we build with our families and would love to meet yours! Schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy educational daycare of Rio Rancho, NM today!
