Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy a nationally accredited educational daycare in Joplin, MO. I'm Melody Andrews and I'm the director. I have a bachelor's degree in communications and am working on my master's degree in education. I have worked in the education field for nine years.

Our school provides Infant Care, Preschool programs and more. Our team is comprised of passionate, experienced teachers who provide a curriculum based on play and hands-on experiences. These learning opportunities promote the development of critical thinking, problem solving, and social interaction skills. Each staff member will keep you informed of your child's day through our brightwheel mobile app. This app allows them to send you photos and updates via text or email. We are excited to add WatchMeGrow this fall. This program will allow our families to live stream their child's classroom so they don't miss a thing!

We offer a safe and healthy environment and require all our teachers to wear face masks. We also conduct health checks at the door of all staff and children. We realize there has been many changes the past few months and we want to support your family by offering flexible schedules or anything else you need. We would love to discuss this when you to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Joplin, MO today!
