Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Decatur, AL! My name is Temika Balentine I am the school director. I have been working in the field of early childhood education for over 17 years. I am the mother of three young men, who are all currently serving in the military.

Our school offers an engaging, nurturing environment for every child during their most critical early years. Our school includes Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Before-and After-School care for School-Age children. In our programs, we follow a STEM approach, providing hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

We are Alabama Quality Stars Rated. Our committed team of teachers here at La Petite Academy have over 100 years of combined teaching experience in the field. Our entire teaching staff has First Aid and CPR training, as well as over 30 yearly training hours in early childhood.

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.

Here's what people have to say

4.67 out of 5 stars
Overall it's been a great experience, and I'm satisfied with my child's development.
My daughter loves her teachers and her friends, i can notice how far she has advanced. The school staff do a good job.
I love LaPetite! I feel all of the teachers love what they do. My daughter comes home with stories each day about what teacher let her do in their room that day. My daughter loves familiar faces, and feels safe with them. If someone is out, she noticing immediately and asks about them. She looks forward to going everyday. We have to remind her regularly that ‘school’ is closed on Saturday and Sunday
and that she can see her teachers and friends again on Monday.
