Welcome to La Petite Academy at Southpoint in Durham, NC! My name is Renee and I am the Academy Director. After earning my B.S. in early childhood education, I obtained a Level III Administration Credential with dreams of becoming a member of management.
Our school provides Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and other early education options. Our staff attends professional training and conferences throughout the year and they are certified in CPR, First Aid and SIDS. Together, they have over 105 years of experience in child care!
Our health and safety practices go above and beyond to ensure the well-being of everyone in our school. From temperatures being taken before entering the building and throughout the day to the repetitive cleaning and santizing high touch areas along with our regular cleaning, our staff is committed to keeping you safe.
Coming soon to our school will be WatchMeGrow. This unique tool will allow families the convenience of being able to view their children’s activities in our classrooms in real time, at any time, on their computer, phone or tablet, with secured access for additional peace of mind.
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.
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 children's "ah-ha" moments 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.
