Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

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 and a new parent mobile app providing real time updates and photos. We provide premium diapers, pull-ups, and wipes for the children that need them. Transportation is provided for school age children these local elementary schools: Collier, Agua Caliente, and Tanque Verde. We offer a soccer elective once a week for children ages 2 to 5.

Safety Protocols – We are focused on health and safety in our school: Temperature checks on all children and staff members, and anyone who goes past the front office. We have increased our sanitizing and disinfecting protocols and have stopped family style dinning.

WatchMeGrow (Coming Soon) – We are offering live streaming that gives you secure access to view your child’s classroom in real time while your child is in our care – either from a computer or via mobile app.

The Prep Lab – We are preparing to support school-age students this fall via The Prep Lab. Supporting our community means not just preparing young children to be ready for elementary school, but also to be there and help keep learning on track when they become school-age students. We support 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.

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!

Great experience, kind people!
I love all the staff and know they love my child and care about his needs. The director knows me and my son by name and I can tell he is developing so well socially.
They are doing an excellent job with my 2 year old. She is talking more and seems to really like her teacher.
We really enjoyed La Petite Tanque Verde. The entire staff is caring, thoughtful, professional, and dedicated to growing and teaching their classes. Our girls were loved by everyone there! We cannot say thank you enough!!!!
I have had only a great experience with the staff and appreciate that they come up with fun activities for my baby and how comfortable they make the room, decorating, to make my child feel at home.
We have had a positive experience so far. Our daughter enjoys learning and making friends here. The teachers are friendly and seem to genuinely care about the students. We really like the special events and appreciate the extra effort the staff makes for these memories. The photos and videos in the school app are also great.
