Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Welcome to Our School

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!

Here's what people have to say

4.9 out of 5 stars
Amazing! Can not say enough great things about the teachers and school.
Generally good. Teachers are nice and communicative in person and the facility is kept clean.
I love how great everyone is! Thank you for everything you do for our babies!
We have had a wonderful experience and would recommend the school time and time again!
All of the staff have been wonderful in every room our son has grown into. We know he is safe and having a good time. He always has nice things to say about school when he comes home.
The reason I love this school for my daughter is the director. Ms. Lacey is the heart and soul of this school and is a huge asset.
Amazing, safety is the number one priority, staff is amazing and caring
Lacy is amazing, our lives got hectic for a moment and she made our needs so easy, and less stressful! It’s as if she and the staff treats us like family, which we don’t have in Arizona other than my dad. Our kids have learned so much through them, I couldn’t ask for more!
I have never seen a staff that hits every mark when it comes to communication with parents, true partnership in working through issues and loving and nurturing my child. I love that I have been able to build relationships with the people who are helping in raise my child, the staff is consistent. The same teachers are with him daily and know him and his day. The director and assistant director are
on the spot! They can always answer any questions I have and they know my child and his day everyday! My son has a medical condition and I feel safe and confident that the staff is able to care for him.
