Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Cedar Rapids, IA where we offer your child a bright beginning! My name is Nicole and I am the academy director. I have worked in early childhood education for more than 15 years.

As a leader in early childhood education and care, La Petite Academy has developed a unique set of curricula for infants all the way up to preschool and pre-kindergarten students. These curricula help children to develop critical-thinking skills and intellectual curiosity for success in kindergarten and beyond!

Our school participates in the Iowa Quality Rating System and we are currently working towards becoming nationally accredited through NAEYC. We serve children ages six weeks to 12 years old and bus to Nixon Elementary School. Our teachers have a multitude of combined education and experience in the field and participate in training throughout the year!

Please call us today to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Cedar Rapids, IA. We look forward to meeting you!
