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

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Columbus, OH! My name is Usha Bhaktava and I am the academy assistant director. I have a masters degree in Business administration, CDA and a certified master teacher. I have been with the company since 2016 as lead pre-k teacher and assistant manager.

We offer Infant Care, Preschool and other age-specific programs. Our experienced teachers seek training in a variety of topics including health and safety, curriculum and developmentally appropriate practices . All our teachers are trained in First Aid and CPR.

We value the relationships we have with our families and love to involve them in our many events including Winter activities, Thanksgiving Feast and more.

Our main hallway skylights allow natural light to fill our building, creating a bright and inviting atmosphere. Our playgrounds are equipped with climbing structures, along with grassy areas, a basketball court, and soccer goals.

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.

We serve the Olentangy and Worthington areas. If you are looking for an educational child care in Columbus or Lewis Center, OH, call La Petite Academy today and schedule a tour!
