Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Tucson, AZ! Safety is our #1 priority and we are doing everything in our power to keep the children healthy and safe while attending La Petite Academy.
All of our staff are required to wear face mask. We are doing temperature checks and hand sanitizing when you walk in to ensure no one with a fever comes in the school. The staff are also sanitizing all day long to ensure that items that are touched are being cleaned. Hand washing is a constant. When coming into the classrooms and several times throughout the day (before and after meal times, after using the restroom or getting their diaper changed, and touching their face, etc)
In addition to superior local Infant Care, our Preschool and Before- and After-School programs offer the best early education in the community. We transport to and from Anna Henry Elementary, Bloom Elementary, Tucson Country Day School, and Academy of Tucson. With the uncertainty about when school is going back into session we are offering help for our school age via The Prep Lab. This will assist our children in the school work or online classes.
We will be offering soon WatchMeGrow, which is a camera system that you will be log onto to see your child for short periods of time throughout the day. Our school is nationally accredited through NECPA and participates in the Quality First program. We ensure safety by checking IDs and providing a pin number for each enrolled family to use to enter the building.
The majority of our teachers have more than five years of teaching experience, including two who have been with La Petite for almost 20 years. Teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state. The entire staff is also certified in CPR and first aid.
