Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare of Horn Lake, MS! My name is Catherine and I am the academy director. I have an A.A.S. in child development technology, a B.S. in Early Childhood Education, five years of management experience and more than 15 years of child care experience.
All staff members are first aid and CPR certified. Together, we have more than 30 years of experience.
We know Health and Safety is at the top of your priority list. Our school may look a little different now. We are doing everything we can to provide a healthy, safe, clean environment. We welcome you with wellness at our front door by taking temperatures. We are wearing big smiles underneath our face masks. We are limiting classroom access. We love our parents, but for now, just at a distance.
We will also continue checking children and staff throughout the day for wellness. We have stopped our family-style dining for now, but we still serve our healthy menu. We have also increased our hand washing, cleaning and sanitizing. We're closely following the guidance from the CDC as well as state and local authorities to enhance our already robust health and safety procedures.
We will also be introducing WatchMeGrow, a live streaming video service! We will be making this feature available to our customers at no additional charge as part of our broader company-wide effort to better connect with the families we serve. Not all schools are connected at this time, but this service is coming soon!
We’re excited to also introduce The Prep Lab – a School-Age program designed to support continued learning between the end of on-site public school classes and the start of next school year’s on-site learning.
We always want to work with parents and their specific schedules. We serve the communities of Horn Lake, Southaven, Walls and surrounding areas. Please stop by or call today to schedule a tour of our amazing La Petite Academy in Horn Lake, MS!
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 making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math
Our School-Age classroom is a perfect setting for productive, engaging mornings and afternoons, where children become thinkers, makers, and doers. Some enhancements in this classroom include:
Education: B.S. in Early Childhood/A.A.S. in Child Development/CDA
Certifications: CPR/First Aid
Working with children of all ages is one of my passions. I take pride in knowing that our center is one that strives for excellence and quality in child care. I enjoy spending time with my family and watching basketball, football, and cooking shows.
Education: Child Development Associate
Certifications: CPR/First Aid
I have worked with children at La Petite Academy for almost 30 years. I enjoy traveling and spending quality time with my family. I enjoy being the Team Lead and the Safety Captain.
