Welcome to our nationally accredited La Petite Academy educational daycare in Kansas City, MO. My name is Crystal and I have been working at La Petite Academy as the director since 2017. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Family and Child development and a Master's in Christian Education. I have been in the Early Childhood Field for over 20 years. I love to be involved in the classrooms, fostering positive relationships, and mentoring teachers on implementing curriculum.
Our program here in Kansas City is amazing because of our teachers! Our teachers will ensure you are actively involved through our Brightwheel mobile app. This app allows our teachers to send photos and updates through out the day. We are also pleased to announce that coming this fall we will offer Watch Me Grow. This will let you live stream your child's classroom so you don't miss a thing!
We have new technology in our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms! Children have access to iPads with educational apps, as well as our Pre-k class has an Inspire Plus interactive monitor and STEM Lab with hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
Health and safety has always been out top priority but we have heightened our measures by requiring all teachers to wear face masks and complete daily health checks throughout the day. The past several months have brought unexpected changes and we want to support you with flexible schedules or anything else you may need. Schedule a tour today and see why our La Petite Academy in Kansas City, MO is the right choice for your child.
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
