Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our nationally-accredited La Petite Academy educational daycare in Tucson, AZ. We are located in the beautiful area of Tanque Verde and Bear Canyon.

I'm excited to share that we offer a STEM-based curriculum. We provide premium diapers, pull-ups, and wipes for the children that need them. Transportation is provided for School-Age children from these local elementary schools: Collier, Agua Caliente, and Tanque Verde. We also offer a tennis elective once a week for children ages three to five.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Let us guide your children and teach them the skills they need for elementary school and beyond. We will ensure your children are happy and safe while in our care!

Please stop in for a tour today to meet my wonderful team and see why La Petite Academy is the best provider of early education and care in Tucson, AZ!
