Thank you for visiting our school, La Petite Academy in Iowa City, IA. Our school includes a loving childcare for Infants, Toddlers, Two's, Preschool, Pre-K, and more! We participate in the Iowa Quality Rating System, where we are currently a 4-star rated school. We are also accredited by National Early Childhood Program Accreditation and our staff members take part in training opportunities throughout the year.
Our school as a whole values many things - the teachers, children, and parents - as an extension of our own family. Together we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for everyone. Our number one goal is to try our best to meet each family's needs and develop strong relationships. We are following CDC and state guidance during this time to ensure all staff, students and families are safe in our care.
We also offer wonderful technology to help parents stay updated thoughout the day. We have a brightwheel mobile app where parents receive real-time updates via pictures and notes of how their child is doing during the day. We will also soon be offering WatchMeGrow, a live streaming tool that will allow parents to peek into their child's classroom.
Please call or visit today for a tour of our La Petite Academy in Iowa City, IA!
