Welcome! My name is Joecella and I am the director here at La Petite Academy in Greenwood Village, CO. I have nearly 20 years of early childhood experience.
We provide infant care, preschool, pre-kindergarten and other early educational programs for children ages eight weeks to 12 years in the Centennial, Aurora and Greenwood Village communities!
More than half of our teachers have at least five years of teaching experience here at this school! We require all of our teachers to obtain their CPR, First Aid and Universal Precautions certification and also a minimum of 15 hours of early childhood related training per year.
Come by any time to meet the new management and amazing staff here at La Petite Academy educational daycare in Greenwood Village, CO.
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More

Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math

I have been working with La Petite since 2018. Before coming to La Petite, I was teaching Preschool for the past five years. In my free time I run my own Etsy shop, crochet, and hike with my two pups. I am happy to be in a role where I can help teachers and children grow!
