Welcome to Our School

Welcome to nationally-accredited La Petite Academy educational daycare in Tucson, AZ! My name is Tiffany and I am the director. I graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor's degree in family studies and I have more than 20 years of experience.

Our Infant Care, Preschool and other programs focus on development of the whole child. We provide premium diapers and wipes for children in our care. Our diapers are hypoallergenic, dye-free and chlorine-free (ECF). We also offer extra programs during the day including music, tumbling, soccer and dance weekly for your child (certain age groups).

Come and see our newly remodeled school including new paint, furniture, flooring, and playgrounds! Plus, two new classrooms! We have a new Infant classroom for mobile infants and an Early Preschool class to assist all of our children in their potty training journeys.

A majority of our team has their Child Development Associate, associate's degrees and/or bachelor's degrees in early education or related fields. They have more than 160 years of combined classroom experience with an outstanding 1,728 hours of continuing education credits.

We are nationally accredited by NEPCA. We also received $9,000 in Quality First Funding which has allowed us to improve our classrooms with current educational items. We serve the Marana, Oro Valley, Casa Adobes, and Northwest Tucson communities.

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
I’m grateful for the staff at la petite over the past 5 years in caring for my 2 kids (currently 1) They seem to sincerely care about my children. They are friendly, welcoming and flexible.
My experiences have always been good. The director and teachers are always welcoming and pleasant. The kids all seem happy here.
My children enjoy their time at school and all of the teachers and staff are friendly and caring.
I am overjoyed with the staff and facilities at La Petite. My kinship foster (8-month old boy) loves it there. He eats well, plays lots and I absolutely love getting the updates during the day and the photos of his activities. The staff is always friendly and inviting. Can't say enough about how my anxiety at leaving my little guy was dispelled. Thank you for all you do!!
Great school & a great staff!
