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 soccer elective once a week for children ages two to five.

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.

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!
