Welcome to our NECPA-accredited La Petite Academy educational daycare in Tucson, AZ. My name is Mindy and I am the academy director. I have over 19 years of early childhood experience as a teacher, assistant director and director.
Our proven STEM-based curriculum helps successfully prepare children for kindergarten! We offer Infant and Toddler Care, Preschool and Pre-K programs. We also have a before- and after-school club and provide bus transport to and from Senita Valley, Mesquite, Dunham, Ford and Marshall elementary schools.
Due to the uncertainty of elementary schools this fall, we are offering The Prep Lab, which will assist children with their classroom assignments. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies.
Safety is our number 1 concern. During this time we are following CDC and AZ Health Department recommendations where all staff must wear masks, all parents/guardians must wear masks upon entering the building, parents/guardians may only drop off in the front office (staff walks the kiddos to and from their classroom), hands are washed upon entering the classrooms, temperatures are taken as the children enter the building, and sanitation occurs throughout the day.
Coming this fall, we will offer WatchMeGrow technology. This gives families the convenience of being able to view their children’s activities in our classrooms in real time on their computer, phone or tablet, with secured access for additional peace of mind.
Collectively, my staff and I have more than 100 years of child care experience and are dedicated to preparing your child for elementary school and beyond. We provide in a loving, warm and caring atmosphere.
Call us today to schedule a tour and see why our La Petite Academy in Tucson, AZ is the premier option for early childhood learning.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
