Welcome to La Petite Academy in Cary, NC! We are a STEM-based early education center with Infant Care, Preschool and Pre-K programs.
My name is Lauren Wright and I am the Academy Director. I have over eight years of experience as an early childcare educator and director. I have a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy, as well as a master’s degree in Music: Performance.
Our school offers brightwheel, a mobile app that sends parents real-time updates! We also make sure that children are safe at all times through our state-of-the-art security system. We'll also be launching WatchMeGrow live-streaming cameras for our families. Only those who are authorized are able to enter the building with a special code and identification is always checked at the door. We also provide diapers and wipes for our young students.
In the recent turmoil that our world has come under, we have also instituted some protocols to further ensure the safety and care of your families. We are practicing social distancing by only allowing one family at a time in the front lobby during drop-off and pick-up, we are doing daily temperature and health checks for all children and staff, although hand washing is something we have promoted for years in our schools, we are making sure that all hands are washed (including infants) upon entry and continuously throughout the day, and we are vigorously cleaning and sanitizing our center, toys, and mats/cribs, daily and periodically during our days! Safety is one of our main priorities, and we want to ensure you that we are doing all that is necessary, in order to keep your little ones safe, happy, and learning!
Please stop by and tour our school, we would love to meet you and show you everything we have to offer!

I have worked with children for over ten years in many different avenues! I began at LPA as a teacher, then Team Lead, and now as an Assistant Director! The best part of working with children is seeing the growth within them and the growth they create within us! I absolutely love it here at La Petite Academy !
