Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Huntersville, NC! Our school offers Infant and Toddler Care, Preschool, Pre-K, Junior Kindergarten and After-School Care . La Petite currently holds a 4-star license issued by the state of North Carolina and is nationally accredited. We service several elementary schools in the area, such as Huntersville, Torrence Creek, Blythe, JV Washam, Grand Oak and Barnette Elementary.
In this challenging and uncertain time, we remain committed to doing everything possible to support our community and to provide families with peace of mind. That starts with providing a safe, secure, and healthy environment for your child when they’re away from home. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain a safe, healthy school environment. Our current health and safety practices include: screening staff and children upon arrival for temperature, symptoms; providing protective face coverings for all staff members to wear when working with children; having parents remain in common areas only; conducting regular wellness checks throughout the day; eliminating family-style dining, only serving pre-plated meals; and enhancing our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices. We'll also be launching WatchMeGrow live-streaming camera access so you can stay connected through your day.
We also understand that there is uncertainty about your child’s school schedule this fall. That’s why we’re here to support you, with a program to keep learning on track for school-age students. Our program provides a great start and finish to every school day through our before- and after- school clubs for ages 5 to 12. In addition, The Prep Lab offers a full-day option, to help keep learning on track for elementary school students. Our teachers are here to support your child’s distance learning requirements; provide character-developing activities form our My Best Self curriculum; and share challenging weekly STEM projects.
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.
