Welcome to Our School

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 (pick up only), Dunham (AM and PM), Marshall (AM and PM), Leman Academy (pick up only -no AM Kinder) and Legacy (pick up only-no AM Kinder) elementary schools.

Safety is our number one concern. During this time we are following CDC and AZ Health Department recommendations. Hands are washed upon entering the classrooms, temperatures are taken as the children enter the building, and sanitation occurs throughout the day.

We are excited to offer live streaming video. 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 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.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
The staff are all caring and nurturing, and welcomed our child into their fold
I enjoy the school and the staff. And my kiddos enjoy it.
La Petite has been instrumental in our foster/adopted children’s lives. The staff is so kind and loving. They really work with our kids who’s behaviors might be outside of the normal due to the circumstances beyond their control. When the time arrives for the children to return home to their parents when the family is healed the staff at this facility are kind and understanding to the biological parents.
I can’t say enough about the outstanding care our children have received.

Hello, My name is Mindy. I have been working in childcare since I was 16 years old. It has always been my passion to watch young children grow and flourish in an academic setting. I have been with La Petite for 13 years and I could not be happier! A fun facts about me is that I have a 13 year old daughter that is the light of my life.
