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.

Plus, read how we keep learning on track for elementary school students with The Prep Lab, offering distance learning support and extra math and literacy experiences in summer camp.

Welcome to Our School

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 13 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. We provide premium diapers, pullups, and wipes for the children that need them. Transportation is provided for school agers to three local Elementary Schools: Collier Elementary, Agua Caliente Elementary, and Tanque Verde Elementary. We offer a soccer elective once a week for children ages 2 to 5.

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 155 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!

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.
