Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Henderson, NV. My name is Cris and I am the academy director. I have been in the Early Childhood Education field for more than 25 years. Along with my experience, I have an AA degree in Early Childhood Education, as well as a Child Development Associate.

I take great pride in the fact that the average tenure of my team is over 8 years plus a combined 140 years of experience. Our teachers are certified in CPR and First Aid and also take part in continuing early childhood education training throughout the year.

We serve the Henderson/Green Valley Community and provide care and education for children 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Our Infant Care, Preschool and other educational programs provide a strong foundation for learning and development. For our school-aged children we have implemented The Prep Lab and will be able to provide care for your school-ager all year round including distant learning for the school year.

Keeping a safe & healthy environment for your little one is our priority. We have updated our health & safety regimen. Currently, we have limited access to our building & only allow children and our team to enter. We take everyone's temperature before coming into the building. At entry/exit, of the classrooms we assist all children in washing their hands, as well as regularly throughout the day. We work vigorously to combat germs with our hospital grade cleaning supplies and pride ourselves on keeping this environment sanitized and disinfected to keep our school clean & our children safe.

We have interior/exterior cameras to view our classrooms, playgrounds, lobby and entrances! We are excited to offer free live streaming video, so you will be able to monitor your child throughout the day via video.

Please call us today so we can meet with you to discuss your little one joining our family. We can't wait to meet you at La Petite Academy in Las Vegas, NV!
