Welcome to Our School

Hello and Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Collierville, TN! My name is Seanette Ellis and I am the academy director. I have more than 13 years of experience in early childhood education. My talented staff and I are eager to care for your most precious children in our center. We serve children from 6 weeks to 12 years old.

We pride ourselves on our professional level of customer service and personal level of commitment to our families. The longevity of our staff ranges up to 24 years and all of our staff members are First Aid/CPR certified.

Our school is equipped with a coded security system as well as cameras. Only families and staff have access to the building during operating hours. We create a warm and safe environment while maintaining the excitement to learn!

We understand that things have changed quite a bit during the coronavirus pandemic. We are committed to doing everything we can to provide a healthy, safe, and clean environment for learning. We conduct temperature checks for all staff and children at the front door. We wear big smiles under our masks. We are also limiting access to our buildings and classrooms. We will meet you at the door, take your child's temperature, and give them lots love as we walk to the sink for hand-washing.

We are excited to offer new technology in our school-age classroom along with a new supportive curriculum called The Prep Lab, which is designed to keep children on track until they return to school. We are working with them daily to help bridge the learning gap. These enhancements include IPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding and more!

We are confident that La Petite Academy offers the strongest early learning program in the Collierville, TN area. We serve all communities around the area, including Memphis, Moscow, Piperton, Cordova, as well as Byhalia, MS.

Call us today to set up a tour we look forward to meeting you!
