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.

Education: Child Development Associate in Early Preschool Education
Working with children is my life-long passion and there is nothing better. I believe all children deserve to have a safe educational environment to learn and grow in. My goal is to provide each child with a lasting education and love of learning.
I absolutely love making a positive difference in the lives of our children through learning and play. I enjoy helping them overcome new challenges and engaging in new experiences. Watching kiddos thrive in their classroom environment puts a smile on my face and is the number 1 reason why I love my job.
