Welcome to Our School

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.

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
Love the school and the teachers!! They are so invested in my child's life and well-being.
La Petite Academy at Greenwood Village has been a great place to have our child. It is difficult being a new parent and needing daycare. But the staff at La Petite knows and cares for our child. There have been countless times that our child has come home with a new skill that they clearly learned at school. It is a great place that we fully trust and appreciate.
I over all have been very happy with school. I especially LOVE LOVE LOVE the infant teacher Lesya I feel like I’m leaving my precious infant with her grandma each day she’s so loving and caring and makes me feel so amazing with the hard decision it is to work while having a baby! I also love summer camp for my daughter she is beyond thrilled to go to school and is having a blast and enjoy the teachers
she has in it!
