Welcome to La Petite Academy in Fenton, MO, located by St. Clare Hospital and Bowles Ave. My name is Myranda Gravitt and I am the academy director. I have an associate's degree in early childhood education and management. I have been with this company since 2014 and have over 10 years of child care experience. I thrive on providing an environment that is safe, comfortable, and positive for our children and families as well as our staff.
We are nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation. We continue to meet their needs of accreditation standards, which are higher than the State of Missouri's Child Daycare Licensing Standards.
With your child's health and safety being our top priority, we have a variety of procedures in place. We are conducting temperature and symptom checks for all students and staff at arrival, limiting parents and outside visitors, and visitors to common areas only, and intensified cleaning and sanitizing measures.
Our school uses advanced and current classroom technologies, including the brightwheel app that sends updates, photos, and videos to parents throughout the day. There is also a messaging feature, allowing you to talk to your child’s teacher via the app throughout the day. Our school is soon launching a new program called WatchMeGrow, which is a live streaming platform for parents to view.
I am confident our La Petite Academy in St. Louis, MO is the best educational daycare in the area. With the many changes the education system is experiencing we are offering flexible schedules to accommodate the changing school policies and working parent’s needs.
