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 bachelors 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, 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.

Safety is a top priority which is why all doors are locked from the outside and we require a code to enter through our front door. Only enrolled families and staff may enter the building. We also have an app where you are able to receive pictures, videos and message the staff. We are also going to have parent access to our live cameras. We have all staff wearing masks throughout the day, limiting all visitors to the lobby, sanitizing stations and taking temperatures of children, staff and visitors prior to entering the building.

Here's what people have to say

4.9 out of 5 stars
Fantastic,engaging, good teachers, great communication
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!
Positive. Director is professional and curtious. Teachers are nurturing and knowledgeable. I feel as though my child is in a safe and loving environment.
I love it ! Teachers are so awesome with Maxx. They make me feel at ease by posting pictures on the app so I can see Maxx through the day. The also text me on the app when needed to ask questions. I love the communication. They are so caring and he is happy ! Makes a working moms life easier !!!!
It has become our family and they have been so helpful to notify and let us know what and where our children are at educational. They all know us and it makes for a positive experience walking into “school” daily.
The teachers are the best. They love the kids.
