Welcome to La Petite Academy at Southpoint in Durham, NC! My name is Renee and I am the acting center director. After earning my B.S. degree in early childhood education, I obtained a Level III Administration Credential with dreams of becoming a member of management. The children and families are truly a part of my family. I love welcoming everyone into our La Petite family of education and fun!
Our school provides Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and other early education options. Our staff attends professional training and conferences throughout the year and is certified in CPR, First Aid and SIDS. Together, they have over 105 years of experience in child care!
Diapers and wipes are included in tuition! We also offer a mobile app which keeps you informed about everything going on during your child's day with updates sent right to your smartphone or email! We pride ourselves in having a safe building - the doors are equipped with a security system and only those who are authorized are able to enter the building.
I have an open-door policy for enrolled parents so we can make our school a home away from home. We serve the child care needs of families in Durham, Raleigh and neighboring cities such as Chapel Hill and Cary.
Please stop by today for a personal tour of our beautiful La Petite Academy educational daycare in Durham, NC!

The most important events I witness are the "ah-ha" moments from children when a concept is learned. This is my passion: to aid in the development of children, families, and staff members. Traveling, cooking, and spending time with my family is how I discover my "ah-ha" moments.
Education: Working on A.A.S. in Early Childhood Development
Certifications: First Aid/CPR; Early Childhood Credentials I and II; SIDS
Being a part of a child's development is a privilege and a pleasure to me. I love watching a child learn and grow. As a wife, mother of three and a grandmother, I love to spend time with my family. I cannot wait wait to be a part of yours.
