Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Cedar Rapids, IA! We offer your child a bright beginning! My name is Stephanie and I am the Academy Director. We are excited to show you all that we have to offer!

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 to demonstrate our commitment to child development. 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 to continue developing themselves to provide the highest quality of care a child can receive. We have several teachers with us for over 15 years and several more with their credentials and associate's degrees in early childhood education.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Please call us today to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Cedar Rapids, IA. We love the opportunity to care for you loved ones.

This Facility is absolutely amazing. My kids love coming in and going to school. They race me in the door everyday. The Director is amazing and the teachers my kids have are beyond wonderful.
