Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Salt Lake City, UT. We are conveniently located in the Cottonwood Heights area. My name is Heather and I am the School Director. I have my Child Development Associate in preschool and more than 24 years of experience as a teacher and school director.

We are committed to the ongoing health and safety of our families. Your child’s well-being is always our top priority. Our enhanced procedures at our school include: following guidelines by CDC as well as state and local health officials, protective masks worn by all staff members, taking temperatures and health checks prior to drop off and through the day of all staff and children, and limited building access. Plus, enhanced health practices include longer hand washing, cleaning and sanitizing of building surfaces and outdoor playground equipment. We are employing these measure to ensure the safety of your child and our staff.

We offer loving, nurturing care, and exciting educational programs from Infants to School Age children. Transportation is provided to Butler, Bella Vista, Ridgecrest, Canyon View and Oakwood elementary schools.

This fall, The Prep Lab supports school-age students and their families as they face any challenges and changes in their local school district this upcoming school year, with flexible scheduling and even a full-day option. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies.

Our location offers online streaming of each classroom and daily updates (including photos and video) from our brightwheel mobile app for all enrolled families. WatchMeGrow (coming soon) gives families the convenience of being able to view their children’s activities in our classrooms in real time on their computer, phone or tablet, with secured access for additional peace of mind.

I am extremely proud of our Salt Lake City teaching staff. We are all CPR/First Aid certified, complete background checks, and receive ongoing mandatory training throughout the year.

I invite you to come tour at our La Petite Academy in Salt Lake City, UT.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
We love La Petite. My son seems so happy there and the entire staff is very enthusiastic and engaging. I can't imagine going anywahere else. Thank you!
I refer all parents who I know looking for daycare. I love the cameras to watch my kids. It adds to my knowledge of how well my kids are treated well!! My kids talk about their day and have made great childhood memories and lifelong friends!
Our experience with LaPetite has been great! The teachers are awesome and really care about our son. We also really like the camera system. It is important for us to be able to look how he is doing throughout the day! Thank you!!!
They were always so kind and loving. If my kids had a hard time with me going, teacher Christy would hold them to the window to wave goodbye. They learned a lot and had a great approach to guide positive behavior.
During the week my son spends most of his day at daycare and I wanted to ensure that he was surrounded by teachers that know him, his tendencies, have patients, teach him, play with him, love him and spend quality time with him. Every teacher has shown this to my son and I never question if he is in good hands and that to me is priceless! The school is very clean and since my son changed daycares he
has hardly been ill at all. The staff is amazing, my son loves all of the teachers and I fully trust the director and her ability to decide who is a good fit for the children. I have nothing but gratitude for this daycare and I do suggest this to anyone looking for childcare!

MY nine year old daughter attended this location when she was 13 months - 2, and then after a hiatus, we came back from the ages of 5-8. When I had another baby, I needed some part-time helping hands when he turned 15 months, and I went back because of our overall excellent experience there with my daughter. He had a difficult transition in the beginning, but after just a couple of months, he looks
forward to going to school and clearly has a great time when he is there. We also see the difference in his social skills (reduction of stranger danger and development of other positive relationships outside the immediate family), which was one of our goals for him. We adore the staff and curriculum at La Petite and have made recommendations to others.
