Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our wonderful La Petite Academy educational daycare in Louisville, CO, voted #1 city in the nation for families! My name is Jodie and I am the director and have been with La Petite for over 33 years.

At La Petite Academy we offer Infant Care, Preschool and other programs that provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. All of our teachers have been in early childhood education for at least three to four years. Most have been at our school for over two years and some up to 25 years. They receive monthly trainings as well as trainings offered by the state.

My goal is to create a warm and caring environment with an open door policy. We offer a number of opportunities for parents to participate, including as classroom readers and guest speakers. We have fun family events!

Our curriculum emphasizes language and literacy, cognitive development, social emotional skills, physical activity and creativity.

We are also excited that La Petite Academy was chosen as Colorado Parents Top 5 Family Favorites in Child Care for 2016! Schedule a tour of our amazing school in Louisville, CO today! I look forward to meeting your family!

Here's what people have to say

4.89 out of 5 stars
We absolutely love La Petite and we have loved all of our child’s teachers.
Love the director and staff
The teachers are always kind and responsive to my questions. I love that they focus on learning letters, colors, emotions, and books each week. Even at 2 years old, I feel like my daughter is learning so much and really being engaged by the curriculum.
Every teacher knows my duaghter’s name and shows genuine care for her as soon as she walks through LPA’s door. We are so happy to be a part of this community!
Friendly staff, lovely children and parents.
Going here has been great! My daughter loves it here and is excited to see her friends and play with her teachers. I love all the fun crafts the toddlers class does and so does my daughter. Those crafts quickly become some of her favorite toys and things she has to carry around the house and show to people all the time. It has really enriched her learning and helped inspire me for more fun easy things
to do with her at home.

It makes me feel so good to see every teacher and staff member know my child by name and greet her in a loving way. The care and safety of all of the children are the primary focus of everyone who works at LPA, and it shows.
We love the care that our child receives at La Petite. The teachers are nurturing and create a fun and safe learning environment.
I would recommend this school to anyone who needs care. The teachers and directors are amazing, caring, and wonderful. They have been helpful with special needs, advice, schooling and family matters. I feel like they are part of the family.
