Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy, a Daycare and Preschool in Simi Valley, CA!

Our school, which provides Infant, Toddler, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs, was established in 1986. We provide a safe, 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.

For our parents, we have a mobile app called brightwheel which lets you have real-time access to what is going on with your child at school. We send updates on food intake, diaper changes, pictures, and even videos straight to your phone!

We are now offering a live stream video app called WatchMeGrow. This gives parents the ability to view their child in their classroom any time of the day they are present.

We have many elective offerings at our school including gymnastics, phonics, yoga, kindermusik, soccer, and Parents' Night Out.

Safety is our number one priority, always making sure our children are safe. Safety protocols we are doing consist of staff wearing a mask when inside our classrooms and outside around the children, parents are dropping off children at our door as we take temperature checks, wash their hands , and take them to their teachers.

We invite you to call and schedule a tour to see for yourself why our school in Simi Valley, CA is the right fit for your family!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
The staff are very caring and professional. The school also has a great curriculum that not only makes learning fun, but also prepares the students for future learning.
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!

We love this school. Our child loves this school. We are so grateful that our child attends La Petite and we think it is providing the foundation for an exceptional path in life.
The director has been very responsive and accommodating. The teachers are loving, nurturing and helpful. My child has grown and become more social since attending LaPetite. It's comforting to know that when I drop off my child she is at a place she enjoys going to with a loving environment.

I started my journey with Learning Care Group at Tutor Time as an infant teacher, traveled to the Preschool 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 Curriculum 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 Disneyland!
