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.

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
