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

I'm ecstatic to welcome you to a great school year and to La Petite Academy educational child care in Charlotte, NC! My name is Jambee Thomas and I am the Academy Director. I have an associate's degree in early childhood education and a Bachelor of Arts degree in early childhood administration. I am a Level III Administrator.

Here at La Petite Academy, we enroll children six weeks to twelve years old. Our Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Pre-K, and School-Age programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. We offer an array of programs within our classrooms! We also have monthly parent outreach events, allowing families to get to know their child's teacher as well as other families.

Our staff enjoy building positive relationships with each family which ensures that each child has a positive learning environment. Most of our teachers have been employed with La Petite from two to 16 years.

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.

We are located in the heart of the North Charlotte, near the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Call today to schedule a tour at our La Petite Academy in Charlotte, NC and see all that we do!

My grandchild attends here and I love it. The front office and very clean and welcoming since the new director came aboard. My grandchild is in the preschool room with Ms Latoy and is learning a lot. She always come home and can tell me what they learned that day. Ms Latoy and Ms Charisma always has a smile on her face and I can tell she enjoy working with the children.
I love this school. I have two children in there now and when I have another they will attend as well.
