Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in east Sandy, UT! My name is Dana and I am the director of this school. I have my child development associate degree and have been with La Petite Academy since 1999. I have over 25 years of experience in childhood education. Our Infant Child Care and Preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development.

I am extremely proud of our staff - they're the best of the best. Some of our teachers have college degrees, or CDA'S and all receive at least 20 hours of training per year, have background checks and are CPR/first aid certified.

We bus to Brookwood, Willow Canyon, Silver Mesa, Oakdale, Quail Hollow, Granite, Park Lane and Peruvian Park Elementary! We also serve the communities of Salt Lake, Cottonwood Heights, & Murray.

We have some great safety protocols in place which include very stringent policies when taking care of infants to insure their utmost safety, along with cleaning processes used throughout the center so we can keep on top of the bugs you can't see. All staff will wear face masks, and we will check temperatures at the door of all staff, and children as they enter the building.

WatchMeGrow will soon be live at our center! This means you will have access to view your child during the day through a camera feed, to check in to see how they are doing, and just know that they are in god hands.

Worried about your school age children getting the support they need when they are back in school? No need to worry we have processes in place to ensure they will be supported with any school works that they may need help with.

Plus, for school age children, we are offering The Prep Lab. This program supports 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.

Please give us a call to set up a tour or to ask questions. We look forward to meeting you!

We love the school and the staff they are all friendly and caring , I love the connection they made with my baby and how much he loves going to school and how happy he feels when he see his teacher and hugs her and kiss her makes us feel so comfortable and we feel safe leaving him at school without worrying if hes doing OK or not . when ever we had a concern which it rarely happens our concerns get
