Welcome to La Petite Academy. My name is Katy Denk, Academy Director for this site. I have my B.S. in Elementary Education with a concentration in teaching and learning in early childhood settings. I am currently studying Early Childhood Education to add to my list of educational foundations.
Our Infant care and Preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. I consider this center as an extension of my own family and I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment. Each of our teachers attend different workshops and training sessions throughout the year. They have over 100 years of combined experience in childhood education. We are working on our NECPA accreditation and have our Level 3 Paths to Quality certification for the state.
To ensure safety and security, our building features a key code entry and each of our teachers has First Aid and CPR certification.
