Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Decatur, AL! My name is Kerrie and I am the academy director. I have been in the child care field for more than 24 years.

Our educational programs range from Infant Care to Preschool to Before- and After-School care for children up to 12 years. In our nurturing, educational environment, parents, teachers, and management all play a vital role in encouraging our children to become active learners and successful students.

We have several long-term staff members - two of our teachers have been with us for over 30 years. All teachers participate in ongoing training and are continually working to increase their education in child development. Most are CPR and First Aid certified.

Call us to schedule a tour today! Our school is one of the only licensed schools in the area that is mandated by the state! I know you'll find that we have an excellent program and the best teachers around at our La Petite Academy in Decatur, AL!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
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.

My passion for working with children started while still in middle school when I babysat, and that passion never died. I truly believe as educators, we have a job/duty to plant seeds and to realize that they will sprout in their time.
