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 Marge Hall and I am the director of this school. I have a CDA, a NAC certificate and more than 27 years of experience in teaching and management.

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.

Our school remains 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.

Plus, we 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.

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.

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.

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!

Great school, daughter has really blossomed
I am happy with La Petite. My kids enjoy their time there as well as their teachers. There is good communication between the parents and they always have fun themes to get involved in throughout the year.
Amazing when I drop my boy off I know that he is well taken care of and I can focus on work with no worries
I love the pictures they put on the app. It was hard leaving my infant in daycare, but I love the pictures. I can tell the staff care about my children.
I love everything about the school. Our experience has been awesome!
