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!
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Soccer, Yoga, Spanish
Education: BA in Multi-Media Communications
Certifications: Colorado Large Child Care Center Director License
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."
Education: A.A. in Early Childhood Education
With over 18 years experience in early childhood, supporting teachers to ensure that children have a safe, fun and educational experience is my passion! I love spending time with my family and pets and traveling.
Education: B.A. in Religious Education, Early Childhood Classes
I am a pastor's wife and have a grown child. I enjoy reading, traveling, shopping and hanging out with friends.
