Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy of Arnold, MO! Here, our staff fosters a safe and loving environment in each of our programs, including Infant Care, Preschool and other early education programs. We have an outstanding team of teachers. Combined, they have more than 70 years of experience.

We value the relationships we have with our families and work hard to involve them. We offer a number of opportunities for our families to be active in their children's academic growth. Some of the many ways we communicate with our families is through daily interaction, our mobile app brightwheel, and parent/teacher conferences.

We are also excited to announce that our school is preparing to roll out the WatchMeGrow live streaming service! This new feature will allow you to view your child's classroom in real-time, both through the web page and the mobile app.

During these uncertain times, safety is our number one priority. Along with partnering with the local health department, we are following guidance from the CDC in regards to the growing COVID-19 pandemic. We take great care in providing a healthy, safe and clean environment to every family in our care.

Touring schools also looks a bit different right now. Please contact us to hear how we are conducting tours, while keeping everyone safe and healthy. We want to ensure you are comfortable about your decision to enroll your child at our school.

We also know that these are uncertain times for our School-Aged students, with the back to school season looking a bit different. We are excited to offer the Prep Lab to our school-age program, helping them catch up and prepare for the upcoming school year. Our teachers are going through training on distant learning, so we are prepared to assist our families with the upcoming school year. We understand the uncertainty, and we are here to be flexible and help with your families needs.
