Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy-Shades Crest! My name is Quenette and I am the academy director! I am a proud graduate of Miles College with two B.S. degrees in education. Previously, I was a Kindergarten teacher in the Birmingham City School District. I have been with La Petite Academy for six years and I absolutely love what I do!

We are QRIS star rated and offer infant, toddler, preschool, and before- and after-school programs. Each classroom is instructed by educators who have a passion for what they do. Our teachers are CPR and First Aid certified and each classroom has a curriculum specifically created for their age group.

We take pride in making sure safety, quality care, and education is implemented successfully and we work cohesively with our families to ensure the needs of every child are met.

Schedule a tour at our La Petite Academy in Birmingham, AL today and let us create long-lasting memories for you and your family!

Here's what people have to say

4.9 out of 5 stars
Love that my children are spending their early years here. La petite has played a vital role in the upbringing of my kids.
Both of my children have gone to La Petite since they were 12 weeks old. They are well taken care of, and I trust the staff whole-heartedly. My daughter is in the early preschool class and she learns so much and is so smart! My son is in the infant room and is loved on every day by many different staff members. They have played a huge role in the early years of my children, and I am thankful for them
every day.
