Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Thornton, CO. My name is Beth and I am the academy director. I have more than 15 years of experience in the Early Childhood field.

We are open and have updated many of our policies to ensure the health and well-being of our students, staff, and families including; daily temperature checks for staff and students, increased hand washing and cleaning/disinfecting, masks for all adults, and only allowing staff and students into the classrooms.

Here at La Petite Academy we offer care for ages 1-10 years old with age-appropriate programs that provide the perfect foundation for child development. We have an outstanding staff dedicated to our children and families. Together, we have more than 150 years of experience.

At our school, you'll love staying connected with your child's daily process by taking advantage of the apps we have available. We are a proud provider of brightwheeel; were you will get real-time photos and updates via text and email. In addition to our Family Communication App, we are excited to announce we are now offering free live streaming video; where parents have video access to their child's classroom.

We also offer The Prep Lab Workbooks which will address the lost class time that children have experienced across the country. These target critical literacy and math skills, allowing children the opportunity to practice these skills so that they will be better prepared to enter the next grade level in the fall.

Please call or stop in to schedule a tour of our fantastic La Petite Academy in Thornton, CO! We also service the communities of Northglenn, Broomfield, Brighton and Commerce City and we bus to Stellar and Skyview (PM only).

Here's what people have to say

4.75 out of 5 stars
Staff is great! Loving and caring and extremely family-oriented environment. They communicate extremely well.
The director and teachers are always friendly and helpful when I have questions or concerns.
It has been amazing thus far! I truly appreciate how well treated my son is, how sweet and caring his teachers have been towards him, and how patient I'm sure they are with him. I'm also thankful they continue to work with him and teach him new things I am unable to due to work. Its truly a blessing to bring your child to a school, and feel safe leaving them there! Thank you!
We love the staff and the atmosphere here our kids are always excited to go and we are comfortable leaving them with any of the amazing ladies that work here. We love their new cameras and the bright wheel we can get updates and pictures of our kids throughout the day it is safe secure and has been a great place to jump start our childrens education with their core curriculum.
