Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Plus, read how we keep learning on track for elementary school students with The Prep Lab, offering distance learning support and extra math and literacy experiences in summer camp.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Blacklick, OH. We serve families in the Blacklick, Reynoldsburg, and Pataskala areas, as well as the east side of Columbus. My name is Julie and I am the director. I have 29 years of experience as a teacher and manager and have been the director at La Petite for the past 25 years.

Our infant care and preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. Our school-age program provides fun clubs for the children before and after school, as well as full day care when school is out.

Seventy-five percent of our teachers have been with La Petite for 10 years or longer. Teachers regularly participate in training and there is always someone in our building with current certification in first aid, CPR, communicable disease management and child abuse recognition. Our front doors are locked with a code-entry system. Anyone without a code may only be let in by a staff member, and we require a photo ID.

We encourage parent interaction and hold parent/teacher conferences twice a year. We host special events throughout the year, including a book fair, holiday craft night and more! We also have three different playgrounds and an attached gymnasium, as well as an indoor gross-motor area with slides and a ball pit.

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
Everyone is very nice and polite. My child’s teacher is great
This is the best Daycare for kids... I love it here, Teachers are so caring and Relatable...
I have loved having my son here. He has learned so much and I know his teachers really care about him!
Amazing, caring, compassionate teachers and staff. They truly care about my child and share stories about him during pick up and drop off. I have absolutely no concerns while he is at school. He has many of the same teachers as my older son, who attended 9 years ago!! The app is informative, easy to use and a great way to get updates about my child throughout the day.
Keeping parents updated with bright wheel is a plus to me as I get to know what happened in school and what is expected of the kids by on daily basis. Teachers friendliness, communication and active listening when talking to them.

Julie Shipley, Director

I've worked in early childhood education for 29 years and and truly believe this is where I was meant to be. I've developed a strong staff dedicated to the children in their care. I love meeting new people and strive to always be available to parents in case they have questions or just want to chat.

For over 30 years I've worked in the education field and I believe the first few years can set a foundation for a love of learning. Whether it's supporting the teachers or working with the children, every interaction is important and has meaning.
