La Petite Academy provides the very best in educational child care, with comprehensive programs for infants through kindergartners. But unlike traditional daycare, a La Petite Academy education provides a strong curriculum in a safe, stimulating environment to create meaningful experiences for your child every day.

Our philosophy and curriculum are inspired by STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. There is a powerful link between STEM and early childhood. Young children are natural-born engineers and scientists. In the STEM approach, science, technology, engineering, and math are a part of everything we do in the classroom.

  • Science is a way of thinking.
  • Technology is a way of doing.
  • Engineering is also a way of doing.
  • Math is a way of measuring.

The skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for children’s success but are also deeply connected to the real world and to how children learn most effectively. Making connections between diverse skills and concepts is how children learn best.

In STEM-inspired classrooms, science, technology, engineering, and math are integrated throughout. Materials and active experiences encourage children to become critical thinkers and problem solvers. Content is learned through investigation, play, and focused intentional teaching.

All children are natural learners who gain knowledge by actively doing and communicating. But we also know that education is not a one-size-fits-all experience.

That’s why we created the School Readiness Pathway, to provide parents with educational options and choices. The Pathway is designed to empower you to find the best path for your child.

Because we developed it just for them.

La Petite Academy. What a great place to start.
