Welcome to Our School

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 in 1995, 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.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

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!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
My experience with this school has been amazing!! The growth (developmental/personal) I've noticed from all four grandchildren is phenomenal. I love seeing the excitement on their little faces when they are telling me all about their day. The staff is so kind and professional. Keep up the GREAT work!!

I have moved across town and still drive across town to bring my kids to this school

My son seems to really enjoy this school. I have seen him interact positively with students and teachers and he is always in a good mood when I pick him up and he rarely cries at drop off. If I ask about his day, the teachers are always more than happy to share. The staff is very polite and friendly at drop off and pick up. It appears that activities that I have witnessed (reading, outside play,
snack time/breakfast) are well organized and group oriented, which I value.

My child is always taken care of well and communication is open. I have never had an issue in the two years that I have entrusted the care of my children to them.
I am very happy with this school. Teachers are always very friendly toward myself and my child. Keep up the good work La Petite!
