Welcome to Our School

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.

La Petite Academy has been chosen as Colorado Parents Top 5 Family Favorites in Child Care for 2018! We would love for you to tour our center in Colorado Springs, CO and give us the opportunity to become a part of your child's education!

This school is great! All of the teachers love my kids and are so helpful. Great people that work there
My grand daughter was born premature and not in the best circumstances. She was quite behind when we started coming. But the love and activity from the nursery ladies/all the ladies and in just 5 short months shes on task and developing with leaps and bounds!
We loved it so much that when summertime rolled around & we lost our school time daycare person they were the first people we tried & they welcomed him w open arms. My child was very excited about going back also. Previously he attended there for 2 yrs & he learned so much, really got ready for kindergarten w everything he learned there. Amazing staff & curriculum!
