Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Colorado Springs, CO! We also serve the communities of Peyton, Falcon, Security, Widefield, Fountain, Fort Carson and Peterson. My name is Karissa and I am the academy director. I received my associate's degree in early childhood education from Pikes Peak Community College and have worked in early childhood education for over 10 years.
Since our school opened in 1995, we have provided a welcoming, high-quality learning environment through our Toddler Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Before- and After-School care and other early education programs.
We have a fabulous group of teachers who have a true passion for what they do. Our teachers receive ongoing training to learn the latest findings in the field.
At La Petite Academy, we know safety is your highest priority and it is ours, too. Both our outer and inner doors have unique coding systems to prevent unauthorized access. Safety drills are part of our monthly routine.
