Welcome to Our School

Welcome! My name is Kylie and I am the center director here at La Petite Academy. I have worked in the early education field as a teacher, trainer, mentor and now director for 10 years. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education with a minor in adolescent psychology.

Our school offers care for children 6 weeks through 12 years of age with before and after school care for elementary children.

We pride ourselves in having a safe facility! Our doors are equipped with a keypad entry and each individual is provided their own code for entry. Our staff members have over 100 years of combined experience and are all certified in infant, toddler, and adult CPR/First Aid and AED usage. We currently have limited building access in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. All adults entering the building must have a face covering, wash/sanitize hands upon entry and remain in common areas only. We are utilizing a front door drop-off and pick-up routine to keep building access minimal and ask that parents only enter if needing to make payments, submit paperwork, or inquire about registration. Temperature checks are done upon arrival for all that enter the building.

Communication and family involvement are very important to us here! We utilize the brightwheel app to keep parents up-to-date on their child's day by providing meal information, nap times, and photos of their child through out the day! We also will be participating in the WatchMeGrow camera footage app beginning July 27th, 2020. Parents will have the opportunity to view their child's classroom by video(no sound, unfortunately)for up to a 30 minute window at a time. We love to facilitate family involvement events and hope to offer those again soon!

We will also be utilizing our NEW Prep Lab for School-Age so that we can help support students with distance learning.

We would love to have you join our family!
