Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Welcome to Our School

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.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Overall it has been a good experience. Every teacher my child has had genuinely cares about her and wants to see her do well.
Excellent atmosphere and environment.
They are so amazing and they have always been there to help me and my family with anything they can. I feel more than safe taking my son there. He loves his school so much I wish he could just stay there for kindergarten!
The teachers are phenomenal!
Happy with the learning activities our children participate in and the staff is very professional.
I love La Petite. Teachers and staff are amazing.
From the second you walk in the door until the time you leave you are greeted by one friendly staff member after another. I appreciate the dedication the entire staff has to our children on many levels!
We’ve had a great experience so far! Our son loves it too. He’s excited to go everyday.
I love it here! The level of care for my son is amazing. The online communication throughout the day is wonderful! I love the updates and photos. It really gets me and my husband through the day. I can tell his teachers really care about him. I love that everyone knows his name.
I am very pleased with my experience. I enjoy the daily updates via Brightwheel. The teachers are great.
