Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Cedar Rapids, IA where we offer your child a bright beginning! My name is Kristy and I am the academy director. I have worked in early childhood education for more than 20 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 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 providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

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.
