Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Littleton, Colorado. I am Melissa, the Academy Director, and I am so happy to be a part of this Colorado Shines quality rated school that serves the Littleton, Morrison, Ken Caryl and Columbine communities.

With our qualified staff and personalized curricula in our Infant Care, Toddler, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and School-Age programs, we believe our school offers the best early education in the community. Our Before-and-After-school program serves families of Powderhorn, Westridge and Mount Carbon elementary schools with transportation to and from school. We have an open-door policy which allows parents to visit at any time and we encourage family participation through bi-annual conferences, fun annual family events and daily interaction.

We have an experienced and hard-working staff that is dedicated to our children and families. All of our staff is CPR and first-aid certified and receive more than 20 hours of professional development training each year. We have 3 staff members that are Director qualified and every one of our staff members carry an active Early Childhood Education Professional Credential through Colorado Shines.

I would love to tell you more about our exceptional programs here at La Petite Academy in Littleton, CO. Schedule your tour with us today!
