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 Heidi and I am the Academy Director.
Since we opened in1995, we provide 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. We are committed to the health and safety of our school and have included taking temperatures of anyone who enters the building, all staff wear masks at all times, all adults wear masks when entering the building and must stay in the front lobby area.
Coming soon we will offer WatchMeGrow, a live streaming of the cameras that we have in each of the classrooms. This way families will be able to check in on their children at any point in the day while their child is in attendance.
The Prep Lab is available during the school year for our school aged students. During these difficult times we understand that you may not have the time to home school your child. If school is offered online we are here to help. The children bring their own electronic device and our staff will help assist with any online schooling or classwork.
We are also so excited that La Petite Academy has been chosen as Colorado Parents Top 5 Family Favorites in Child Care for 2016! If you are looking for a safe, education-driven early child care experience, then call our La Petite Academy in Colorado Springs, CO today to schedule a tour!
