Welcome to La Petite Academy in Aurora, CO! We offer programs for children 12 months up to 5 years, including transportation to and from Cimarron and Sunrise Elementary for those students in Kindergarten as well as an in-depth summer camp program!
Since our school opened in 1979, we have offered a welcoming, high-quality learning environment for children. Safety and education are our top priorities. During these challenging times we are following strict health and sanitation guidelines to ensure our students, families, and staff remain safe and healthy. Temperature checks are conducted at morning drop-off as well as throughout the day. Toys, surfaces, and common areas are routinely sanitized and disinfected and hand-washing is closely monitored to ensure children are washing all the germs away!
Our doors are equipped with a security system that only allows current family members inside and we have continual training with our teachers on our safety procedures to create the safest environment possible. We utilize various curriculum to help stay on track with our School Readiness Pathway, which ensures your child is receiving a developmentally appropriate education to prepare them for school. Our newest curriculum, The Prep Lab, helps reduce learning loss and supports school-age students with distant learning.
We also have multiple platforms that help families stay connected. Through the brightwheel and WatchMeGrow applications, we are able to offer live video streaming and real-time updates on your child's activities and experiences while away at school.
Together, our staff has more than 150 years of experience and we continue to grow! Call us or stop by to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Aurora, CO!

I have over 12 years experience working with youth and two years experience in a management setting. I love watching our youth grow and develop and truly find it rewarding as they hit developmental milestones! I am originally from Ohio, but recently moved to Colorado from Florida. I am excited to be working with La Petite and to make this school my forever home!
Certifications: Director's Credential
My name is Matt Callif, and I have been working in childcare since 2011. Since then, I have worked with almost every age group. Some things I enjoy most about La Petite is the amazing management they have and how there are unlimited resources for staff to reach and go beyond their full potential. Some of my hobbies include, cooking, going on walks with my two Australian Shepherds, collecting/creating art and spending time with my wife.
