Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Aurora, CO! My name is Michelle and I am the academy director of this school that offers Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Junior Kindergarten and other age-specific programs. I have more than 14 years of experience teaching and leading a team of educators.

Since our school opened in 1979, we have offered a welcoming, high-quality learning environment for children. Currently, we serve SE Aurora, Centennial and towns along the Eastern Plains. We also bus to various elementary schools, all located in Aurora and the Cherry Creek School District.

Our number one priority is safety, which is why our doors are equipped with a security system that only allows current family members inside. We have continual training with our teachers on our safety procedures to create the safest environment possible.

Together, our staff has more than 150 years of experience. Majority of them have been with us in Aurora for over nine years. All teachers receive regular training and they are all certified in CPR, first aid and universal precautions.

We are so excited that La Petite Academy has been chosen as Colorado Parents Top 5 Family Favorites in Child Care for 2016! Call us or stop by to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Aurora, CO!

My son is in the Toddler 1 class and the teachers are awesome!
We transferred our daughter into the toddler room at this location from another location and we were apprehensive at first but only had great experiences. The teachers are so caring and attentive to our slightly introverted toddler. We are so happy here
My child loves La Petite. She’s learning so much and making great friends. She’s a very picky eater and the teachers have really helped her explore and try new foods! She’s always excited to go and shared some great stories of her day with us of her day.
I have had nothing but great things to say about this school and the teachers. They are very friendly and concerned about my children, as if they were their own.
We have had such a wonderful, enriching experience at La Petite during our time in this area. I would love to keep our child in this program as long as possible!
I'm so happy we chose this school for my daughter. The location is convenient and the staff is always friendly. My interactions with the teachers have been pleasant and professional, and my daughter is always happy to see them. She also enjoys playing with her peers and I'm appreciative of the updates I receive about her day through the school's app.
The teachers at this school are phenomenal. They are very engaged with the children and devoted to the educational development of my children. I have had a child in every classroom at this school and they are all GREAT!

This school is my second home! I began as a teacher in 2001 and worked my way up to center director in 2013. I enjoy taking the time to get to know all of my families and what brought them to the school. Interacting with the children in every classroom gives me a chance to "be a kid again."
