Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Colorado Springs, CO! My name is Kim and I am the director. I have a bachelor's degree in early childhood education and a master's degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis on early childhood. I have been in this field for over 25 years.
I view this school, which includes Infant Care and Preschool programs, as an extension of my own family. I create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan family events, parent/teacher conferences, open houses and more! Our staff works hard to ensure our families meet each other and develop strong relationships.
We have an outstanding staff here in Colorado Springs that is dedicated to the school and families of our community. They participate in over 20 hours of training throughout the year.
