Welcome to La Petite Academy in Des Moines, IA!

Thank you for visiting our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Des Moines, IA! My name is Jenny Snyder and I am the Director. I have been with La Petite since 1988 and have been the Academy Director since 1991. I also have my National Director Credential. 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 QRS (Quality Rating System) in Iowa, as well as the CACFP Federal Food Program. The standards we follow are higher than the State of Iowa Child Daycare Licensing Standards.

The school offers the highest quality care and education, and I view all families here as an extension of my own family. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy. I work hard to make sure we meet each family’s needs and develop strong relationships.

I have long-term, experienced and dedicated staff. 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 more than 35 years. I have had the pleasure to see former students bring their own children here to attend La Petite as they did.

We value the relationships with all of our families here and I hope you will be joining us soon. Schedule a tour of our fantastic La Petite Academy educational child care in Des Moines, IA today!
