Welcome to La Petite Academy, where open spaces and open concepts create open minds! My name is Alaysha, academy director, and I have worked with La Petite Academy since 2006.
Our educational approach is designed to strengthen and develop what makes your child so extraordinary. It nurtures strong connections between teachers and children and leads to your child's bright future. The free-flowing, open concept design of our facilities inspires a nurturing, interactive, and collaborative environment in which your child can thrive. Our schools and classrooms give children room to grow, room to share, and room to be themselves.
I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan a lot of events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure that families here in Ballwin meet each other and develop strong relationships.
We have an outstanding staff that is dedicated to our children and families. Half our teachers have taught at our school for more than five years and we have more than 125 years of combined experience. All of our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state. Additionally, 90% of our staff is certified in CPR and First Aid.

When I began working with La Petite Academy as an assistant teacher in 2006, I quickly recognized my passion for early education and became a part of the management team. I have been a director for two years and love watching the students' love for education grow with every learning moment.
Education: B.S. in Elementary Education
Although I have only been at the Ballwin La Petite since January of 2018, I have been working for La Petite since 2012. I was a Pre-K teacher for most of my time before moving up into management. I strive to be a resource for teachers and parents in preparing their children for Kindergarten.
