Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Scottsdale, AZ! My name is Sara and I am the School Director. I have over 20 years of experience in early childhood education and hold an Associates degree in Psychology and am currently working towards my Bachelors.
Our school offers Infant Care and a STEM-based curriculum for Preschool and Pre-K programs. We are enrolled in the Quality First program and have a 3-star rating. We serve the Scottsdale, North Phoenix and Paradise Valley communities.
I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for all my parents. We plan many events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships.
For our school age children we are offering The Prep Lab. This program 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.
I'm proud of my team of teachers. Collectively, we have over 150 years of experience. All teachers receive monthly training to keep them abreast of the latest research and developments.
COMING SOON: We’re excited to share that our school will offer WatchMeGrow live video streaming! WatchMeGrow gives you secure access to view your child’s classroom in real time while your child is in our care – either from a computer or via mobile app.
We look forward to welcoming you to our La Petite Academy in Scottsdale, AZ today!

I have been on counseling committees connected to our church and community though out the years and love to help and re-instill confidence and passion to others.
