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.

Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More

Wondering how you can keep your child’s learning going strong at home? Now you can adapt our personalized curriculum approach to fun activities you can do together.
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.
