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 six weeks to 12 years in the Centennial, Aurora and Greenwood Village communities!
We know that being apart from your children can be a challenge. That's why we want to make sure you feel connected throughout the day, every day, sharing in all your child's experience with WatchMeGrow streaming video and the brightwheel app. We authorize every parent account and WatchMeGrow will offer live streaming video in your child's classroom.
More than half of our teachers have at least 10 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.
Your child's well-being is our top priority, that starts with creating a safe, secure, and healthy environment for your child when they're away from home. We closely follow guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain a safe, healthy school environment. Our Health and Safety practices include, screening staff, children and parents, limiting visitors, rigorous cleanliness, staff wearing masks, doing temperature checks and continued hygiene practices.
Come by anytime to meet our management team and amazing staff here at La Petite Academy educational daycare in Greenwood Village, CO.
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
