The Journey® curriculum at La Petite Academy is specifically designed to meet the child care and learning needs of four and five year old children. This challenging, fun and age-appropriate program engages the whole child, helping to hone thinking, reasoning and communicating.
Kindergarten readiness is so important that we’ve added a Back to Basics Math, Language & Literacy Program that’s tied to the Common Core National Kindergarten Standards.
The Pre-K classroom at each of our La Petite Academy schools is designed to help your child make significant developmental gains, like communicating successfully, and working well both independently and in groups. Our highly trained teachers will use designated Learning Centers to prepare your child for Kindergarten and life beyond.

The year-round Pre-K curriculum includes 22 themed units that incorporate the best practices of early childhood education experts and promote school-readiness.

The typical daily structure for your child might include:
In addition, our Journey summer program offers three months of learning, fun and sun—filled with exciting themes and activities that reinforce learning objectives and further school-readiness.
You’ll receive assessments regularly through daily written reports, ongoing portfolio collections, quarterly reports and family/teacher conferences twice a year, so you can rest assured that your child is progressing throughout the year.
