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 28 years. Along with my experience, I have an A.A. 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 7 years of age. Our Infant Care, Preschool and other educational programs provide a strong foundation for learning and development.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

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!
