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 Associates Degree in early childhood education and a Bachelor of Arts degree in early childhood administration. I am a Level III Administrator.
We are excited to be here for you, where we can help foster your child in all developmental areas of learning. With live streaming coming soon through our WatchMeGrow app, you too will be able to watch your child grow and learn in a safe environment. Safety is one of the top priority for our school! We have stepped up our safety protocols to ensure that you and your child's health and safety is at the forefront everyday. Some of the things we are doing to ensure health and safety at all times are: temperature checks, wearing face mask for all entering building, COVID-19 health questionnaire, higher concentrated cleaning solutions, and more.
Here at La Petite Academy, we enroll children six weeks to twelve years old. Our Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Pre-K, Jr-K and School-Age programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. We offer an array of programs within our classrooms! One of which is our newly added Prep Lab, which will help our school age students this fall as they move towards virtual learning. 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.
