Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Does your child love to wear their clothes backwards on opposite day? Decorate rooms with their super creative and colorful artwork? Make friends and have fun while learning anything and everything their little minds can? Then this is the school for you!

My name is Tamara Trujillo and I am the director at this La Petite Academy educational daycare and preschool of Castle Rock, CO. I love all the children and families that come through our front door. I know every child by name and always have an open heart and listening ear for everyone in the family. You will find me frequently talking with families and sharing stickers with children from my infamous sticker drawer.

Our school offers an engaging, nurturing environment for every child during their most critical early years. We offer programs for infants, toddlers, early-preschool, preschool, and pre-kindergarten. We provide meaningful experiences to challenge children and give them a well-rounded education. This includes offering Spanish lessons to our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classes. We also make sure to include school-wide fun activities, such as dress-up or themed days, bringing a favorite book to share, parent breakfast days, and so much more!

Many of our staff members have been here for years and regularly participate in early education trainings. Together, we have over 106 years of early-childcare education experience! Several teachers are CDA certified, and others are working on obtaining theirs.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families: SproutAbout.

Entrusting your child with us means your child will get to know staff members and form bonds that will last for years to come. We truly enjoy every day at our La Petite Academy and invite you to come in for a tour and see our amazing school first hand.

I love it there and so do my children

I am very picky, and seeing the cleanliness of the school is comforting and knowing that my child is being left in a safe environment with good people makes it easy to leave him at LaPetite. I especially like the Brightwheel App and the ability to see what my child is doing throughout the day and seeing how happy he is in the daily photos. Keep up the good work!!
