Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy, a daycare and preschool in Simi Valley, CA!

My name is Shannon Sutton, Center Director of La Petite Academy. Our school, which provides Infant, Toddler, Preschool, and Pre-Kindergarten programs, was established in 1986. We provide a safe, loving, positive, and educational environment where children's individual needs are met by our dedicated teachers.

Many of our teachers have over 10 years of teaching experience and we all participate in new training programs throughout the year. We are a STEM school, so our curriculum focuses on science, technology, engineering and math. Every teacher works tirelessly to build a trusting and caring relationship with each child, so the time of transition is effortless for the family.

We provide complimentary diapers and pull-ups, along with non-scented and alcohol-free wipes for our younger children. We provide a hot lunch and two snacks a day, which our on-site chef prepares fresh daily. We also have many elective offerings at our school including karate, phonics, soccer, and Parents' Night Out.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

We invite you to visit our website and schedule a tour to see for yourself why our school is the right fit for your family!

I have had the BEST experience. All the teachers are excellent and add their own unique qualities to each child and genuinely care about their students. They have kindly helped with any questions or concerns that I have had and made me feel amazing about sending my son here. He comes home everyday talking about the teachers and how much he loves going. Finding this school has engaged my son and allowed
him to grow while not breaking the bank for us! Thank you La Petite!

I started my journey with Learning Care Group at Tutor Time as a two's teacher, traveled to the infant room as the lead teacher, and eventually moved my way up to assistant director and then transferred over to La Petite Academy as director. My passion is for early childhood education and as director, I ensure our teachers are utilizing our curriculum to the best of our ability. When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and going to the beach.
