Keeping Families Connected

Our families mean the world to us and keeping them connected is one of our main goals. That’s why we created SproutAbout, our exclusive family communications app that features live streaming video of the classroom and much, much more.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Aurora, CO! We offer programs for children 12 months up to five 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.

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.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

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!

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
The school has done a great job of making us all feel comfortable throughout this pandemic and keeping our Weston safe & happy!
We have been nothing but happy with our experience. Our daughter loves to come to school and see her friends and teachers. Staff and teachers are fantastic!
I like that the school is offering nutritious meals, we feel that she is in good hands.
Initially I was nervous to start my child in childcare since she's our first. The teachers in her classroom have been amazing. We really enjoy receiving pictures of her daily to see what she's up to. Our child is happy when we drop her off, no tears, and happy when we pick her up. We are very glad she's able to gain social skills and make new friends. Overall we couldn't be more pleased to have her
enrolled at this school.

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.
