Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Hilliard, OH! My name is Nikki and I am the academy director. I have over 20 years of experience in early child care.
We are a 4 star rated center in Ohio's Step Up to Quality Program. Many of our teachers have been here over 7 years and are dedicated to helping our students develop a lifelong love of learning. We conduct in service training for staff monthly to ensure we are always up to date on child development innovations.
We are staying vigilant about health and safety. We currently are having all parents and visitors remain outside during pick up and drop off. Our aim is to limit the flow of people in our classrooms in order to maintain our high standards for a healthy environment.
Our school offers infant care, preschool and other early education programs. We also offer a school age program and provide afternoon transportation, snacks and homework help to our school-agers. Our curriculum is continually updated and enhanced to meet and exceed all Kindergarten readiness requirements for the State of Ohio. We feel that our children and parents are part of our extended family, which is why we provide personalized communication to meet their needs.
We are excited to offer new technology in our school age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos; tripods for movie making; robots for coding; and more!
Coming soon: Watch Me Grow—a streaming video service parents can use to take a peek at their child throughout the day. It will be available live from any browser, tablet, or mobile phone.
We proudly serve the Hilliard and Upper Arlington Community. Come join us today for a tour of our amazing La Petite Academy in Hilliard, OH to see all we have to offer!
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
