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.
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.
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.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

Education: Working on Child Development Associate
I have been the director at the La Petite Academy for 15 years and I have 17 years of experience. I have worked as a teacher in infants all the way up to school-age, as well as in every position in management. Knowing that I make a difference in the children's lives gives me joy!
Education: B.A. in Family Studies
I have worked with children for the last 23 years. I have worked as a teacher as well as an assistant director. Helping to shape and mold the lives of children is such a rewarding career.
Education: Associates of Arts in Teaching
I was born and raised in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I graduated from NWACC in 2012 with my Associates of Arts in Teaching. I have worked in education for five years. Two of those were with students with special needs.
