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 more than 25 years of experience in early childhood education. We receive ongoing training to continue providing safe, educational experiences for children.
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.
During this challenging time, I would like to reassure that we are closely following the CDC guidelines as well as the state and local guidelines. As we move forward tours, pick-up times, as well as drop-off times look very different. Visitors and families are asked to wear a mask and keep contact to common areas of our school. We provide current families with an app called brightwheel, where families receive real-time photos, videos, and updates. And because safety is our number one priority, we will be offering WatchMeGrow which is a secure site to access our cameras, this feature hasn't come to our school yet, but will be very soon!
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!
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
