Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Des Moines, IA! My name is Jenny and I am the Director. I have been with La Petite since 1988 and have been the Academy Director since 1991.

In addition to providing superior local child care, our preschool program offers the best early childhood education in the Des Moines community. Our school currently participates in the Quality Rating System in Iowa, as well as the CACFP Federal Food Program.

I view all families here as an extension of my own and I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment. I have a great team that is experienced and dedicated to our families. At the end of 2012, our school held four dedication plaques for teachers who have served more than 20 years, including myself!

We have been in the South Side community for nearly 40 years. I have had the pleasure to see former students bring their own children here to attend La Petite. Schedule a tour of our fantastic La Petite Academy in Des Moines, IA today!

I believe a successful early childhood education is the stepping stone to elementary education. I take pride in my teaching teams and the quality care they provide. Both of my daughters attended La Petite Academy, and were very prepared educationally and socially for kindergarten.

I love all the relationships I have developed with the families over the years. The growth of the children from the beginning of the school year to pre-k graduation is amazing to be a part of.
