Exciting Changes Coming Soon!

We're putting our best foot forward! Get ready to see some changes at our school. It’s not just a new coat of paint, but interior and exterior updates, as well as upgraded playground equipment! We can’t wait to share it all with you.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational child care center in Bellevue, NE! My name is Carolyn Perez, and I am the academy director. I have a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis in education. Prior to taking on this position, I was a program assistant director for five years, but have been with La Petite Academy since 2012.

Collectively, our teachers have over 100 years of experience in early childhood education. We receive ongoing training to continue providing safe, educational experiences for children. We also hold the best retention of teachers in our district.

Safety is our top priority, so our building is equipped with a locked-door entry security system. Only those who are authorized for pick-up are able to enter the building by typing in a code, and identification is always checked by a member of management.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Since opening in 1980, we have offered a welcoming, high-quality learning environment for children. Call us today to schedule a tour at La Petite Academy in Bellevue, NE!

I love everything about this school and the director and the educators.

An amazing experience. The director and staff are wonderful.

Very happy with the teachers, not only the ones that my son interacts with on a daily basis, but all of them. They greet me when I come in, tell me things about my son that they’ve noticed. Overall, the engagement and attentiveness is great, and that’s something I appreciate!
Verified Shopper
I love this school. When we had our tour before signing up, all of the staff was warm and welcoming. They introduced themselves to our kids and made them feel comfortable. They are still as kind every day when I drop off/pick up my kids. The staff knows each of them by name and know enough about them to help with any issues I may be having whether that child is in their class or not. I HIGHLY recommend
this school for anyone needing quality care.

Very friendly staff. Love seeing the activities my kids do every day. The staff is very helpful and understanding to my 3yo having struggles at drop off.

We love La Petite Bellevue. My boys always surprise us with something new that they have learned from the teachers there. The teachers have been amazing and genuinely care about my kids. I'm always updated by the staff when I drop and pick up my kids. This leaves me worried free knowing my kids are well taken care of while I am at work.

Our daughter has learned so much since we moved her to La Petite. They helped her learn to walk, how to use hand signals, and motions to different songs. The teachers are always excited to see her and seem to be very attentive to the children. We are always greeted with a warm hello when we walk in
Verified Shopper
La Petite has exceeded my expectations when I started taking my children there. The teachers here are wonderful. They love my children like their own, nurture them, comfort them and keep them safe. They work with my children on reaching their milestones and educate them. You can tell the teachers and staff that work at La Petite in Bellevue truly love their jobs which reflects on how they care
for your children. It can be hard to find quality child care but I am glad we were able to find it at La Petite.
