Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Fort Wayne, IN. We are an early childhood education state approved provider. My name is Shelby and I am the academy director. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education along with a dual license in early childhood and a minor in educational psychology. I am personally passionate about development under age five and how we are able to change environments to enhance learning.

This school has provided children a safe, nurturing and supportive environment in which to grow, play and learn in the Fort Wayne area for the past 30 years. Our center is licensed through the state, a Level 4 on the Paths to Quality and also NAEYC Accredited. At La Petite Academy, our Infant care through Preschool/Pre-Kindergarten programs provide a wonderful foundation for learning and development.

Our teachers maintain at least 25 hours of professional development and are also CPR and First Aid certified. The staff stays current with monthly training sessions and ongoing training opportunities offered by the state. We have a great ratio of more than 50% of our staff have degrees in what age group they are working in.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

I love how much this particular school involves the parents in activities, whether it’s muffins with mom, art shows or parents night out. I love getting the opportunity to be apart of it. I love seeing the work my kids do displayed on the wall. And I especially appreciate the time and effort each teacher takes with my children

We love La Petit and especially his current teacher! She has brought our shy boy out of his shell and he adores her. She makes learning fun and engaging, I am consistently surprised with how creative she is with new lessons. She fosters confidence and independence. We are so lucky she was his first educator and La Petit was his first place outside of home to learn!
