Welcome to our nationally-accredited La Petite Academy educational daycare in Tucson, AZ. My name is Christie and I am the academy director. I have worked at La Petite Academy for 11 wonderful years. 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 and a new parent mobile app providing real time updates and photos. Whether it's providing loving care for infants or participating in activities in our Preschool programs, I truly love what I do each day. My staff, children and parents are like family to me. We have a great staff - they all have their CPR and first aid certifications and more than 135 years of combined early childhood experience.
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!
