Welcome to La Petite Academy in Joplin, MO!

I'm Megan Long and am blessed to be the Director of this wonderful educational daycare in Joplin, MO. I hold a master's degree in education and I have worked in the education field for 12 years. I lead a talented and dedicated staff that works diligently to provide each child with an exemplary early childhood education.

We are a state-licensed daycare facility and the only corporate-owned facility in the area. We strive to provide standards higher than our licensing requirements. Therefore, we are currently pursuing accreditation. Our goal is to receive NECPA review and verification this year.

Our team is comprised of passionate, experienced teachers. These teachers provide the children in their care with a curriculum-based, active learning education through play-based activities and hands-on experiences. These learning opportunities promote the development of critical thinking, problem solving, and social interaction skills.

My team and I here in Joplin strive to have our facility function as an extension of the family, where parents, children, and staff work cooperatively towards a common goal. We provide you and your child with a warm, loving, and nurturing environment. Our open-door policy provides daily communication opportunities to support parents and ensure the success of their child. Throughout the year we provide a variety of special events which promote learning and build strong relationships within our school.

As educators, the success of our students proves our greatest reward. We love to see the enjoyment on each child's face after they've had a great day with us. Such enjoyment is provided by an outstanding staff with extensive experience. Each staff member receives monthly training and a minimum of 30 hours of continuing education each year.

We value the opportunity to work with your child. Schedule a tour of our fantastic daycare in Joplin, MO!
