Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Huntsville, AL!
My name is Kristi-Douglas McCauley and I'm the Center Director. I have been an early childhood educator for more than 23 years. I am dedicated to delivering quality care and education to children through our many programs including learning-based infant care, preschool programs and more.
I enjoy the personal relationships I have formed with parents and children and truly feel like an extension of their families.
I have a great group of teachers! More than half of them have worked at this location for at least five years and together, they have more than 100 years of experience in the classrooms. They receive monthly training and attend ongoing training sessions in CPR and first aid and we also have Child Development Associate-qualified teachers on our team.
During this difficult time with COVID-19 we are taking extra precautions and safety measures to keep our children and staff safe.
Upon arrival, we screen the children's and staff for temperature and symptoms. Everyone must wash hands with soap or use hand sanitizer upon entry to the building. Parents, visitors and vendors are restricted to common areas only and we strive to maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet apart at all times. Teachers and all other staff are required to wear face masks while working.
For School-Agers, we have a new Prep Lab program, designed specifically for elementary school students to bridge potential learning gaps between school years!
We are also in the process of implementing WatchMeGrow, which will allow you to see your child during the day through our live-streaming classroom video, that is encrypted and tightly controlled, with every account authorized individually.
We invite you to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Huntsville, AL!
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
