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.

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.
Education: Early Childhood/Psychology
Certifications: CPR/First Aid, Certified Food Protection Manager
I have always had a passion for teaching. I very much enjoy seeing children learn, grow and develop into successful, independent little adults and it brings a great sense of joy knowing that I, along with our wonderful staff, am able to be a positive influence in their lives.
Certifications: CPR/First Aid
For as long as I can remember, I have been teaching children, including children with special needs. Teaching is a special gift to have, and as a family-oriented person with two children of my own, I take pride in knowing I am making a difference in their lives.
