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.
We create a welcoming environment in our Infant Care, Preschool and other age-specific programs. I maintain an open-door policy and we plan a lot of events for our families to participate in. To help create a safe environment, we have cameras inside every classroom and surrounding our facility. Our building can only be accessed by staff and enrolled families by using unique door codes.
We have new technology in our school-age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for moviemaking, robots for coding, a new gaming system and more!
All staff members are first aid and CPR certified. Together, they have more than 30 years of experience. Our center is currently a 3 STAR center because of the hard work and dedication that our staff provides. We also have monthly training for all staff members as well as safety drills.
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!
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
