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 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. Also, all healthy meals and snacks are included.

Health and safety are essential to me, and at our school, they come first. Your child's well-being is always our top priority. Our current health and safety practices include: following guidance from the CDC, temperature checks upon entrance to the building for all, protective face coverings for all adults entering the building and teachers in the classroom, limited classroom access to parents and vendors, and rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices.

This fall, we will have The Prep Lab, which supports school-age students and their families as they face any challenges and changes in their local school district this upcoming school year, with flexible scheduling and even a full-day option. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies.

With WatchMeGrow live streaming video, you'll be able to view your child's classroom on any smart device or computer, to see them learn, play, and grow every day, all day. Plus, with brightwheel you can also receive real-time updates, photos, and videos from your child's teachers through our mobile app for parents.

Come and see our newly remodeled school including new paint, furniture, flooring, and playgrounds! 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 serve the Marana, Oro Valley, Casa Adobes, and Northwest Tucson communities. Schedule a tour to find out why our La Petite Academy is the best provider of early education and child care in Tucson, AZ!

I love this place for my daughter

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!
