Every La Petite Academy is staffed by highly trained and skilled teachers dedicated to helping your child reach his or her full potential.
To ensure staff quality, we developed a customized assessment to select highly competent teachers and care staff. This validated pre-hiring assessment uniquely identifies high-quality candidates. To our knowledge, no competitors use such a tool.
We check references and conduct thorough background checks based on state and/or local licensing requirements. This includes fingerprinting and appropriate criminal background checks, as well as verification of educational credentials. Candidates who will transport children undergo a thorough driving history check and annual checks.
