Welcome to Our School

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!

Here's what people have to say

4.75 out of 5 stars
The teachers and director are so caring and really feel like an extension of our family.
This school has great teachers and administrators. I would recommend this location to anyone seeking high quality care for this children.
We've been very happy. Our child comes home talking about his day with a smile. We enjoy that he has been able to make friends and is learning through play each and every day.
When walking into this center, I knew my child would have a great experience. The first thing I noticed was the security system. You cannot simply walk in, every parent had a unique code to enter the building. The director walked us through the center in a quick efficient manner. The pride she has in her school was fantastic. LaPetite was very clean and organized. The teachers greeted us upon entering
the classrooms, sharing their lesson plans, ideas on what they were learning and planning to learn. All of these factors in addition to the quality of education my children would receive is why I enrolled my toddler and pre-K child. They have both been at the center for a month, and Ms. Renee is ALWAYS KIND AND HELPFUL, and the teachers in the classrooms are phenomenal! If you are looking for a great school for all the family, this is THE place to be!

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.
