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!

I've loved this school. They have helped my child grow so much and worked with us to make sure he is growing to be a good child.
We have loved our experience with La Petite. We can tell our daughter has grown her social skills and educational skills since starting to attend
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. I'm so happy I will never have to look for a new daycare again. My oldest has special needs and they work amazing with him and make him so comfortable. I recommend this place over and over again.
We love the staff and teachers in the infant room! They go above and beyond for the kids!
