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.
Our schools offers programs for Infant and Toddler Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten School Age programs. Our school has a warm and welcoming environment and our staff works hard to ensure our families meet each other and develop strong relationships.
Health and safety are essential to me, and at our school, they come first. Your child's well-being is always our top priority. In this challenging, uncertain time, we recognize the strain the current climate creates for families. We remain committed to doing everything possible to support our community. That starts with a healthy, safe environment for your child when they're away from home. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment. Face coverings are required for any adult entering the building (all staff members wear them when working with children). Where required by law or licensing, children must also wear masks.
Plus, we are offering The Prep Lab. This program supports school-age and their families as they face any challenges and changes in their local school district this upcoming school year, with flexible scheduling and even a full-day option. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies.
With our new WatchMeGrow technology, you’ll be able to view your child’s activities in the classroom on any smart device or computer. Deployed, traveling, or just plain busy parents will be able to see their child learn, play, and grow every day, all day.
I can't wait to meet you and have you join our family!

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
