Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome! My name is Lisa Kearns and I am the director of the La Petite Academy in the Liberty area. I have spent over 35 years working in service of children and am so excited to share our nationally accredited school with your family.

In addition to providing superior Infant Care, our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs offer the best early education in the community. Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with a beautiful nursery for your Infant, a magnitude of learning materials for your Toddler and two-year old, and computers containing educational programs in every Preschool and Pre-K classroom. Children have access to iPads with educational apps, our Preschool class has an Inspire Plus interactive table, and our Pre-K class features a STEM Lab with hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We also have a School-Age program that provides before and after school transportation for many local elementary schools, as well as a fun-filled summer camp program.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

We are very happy with La Petite Academy. The staff is very welcoming. Knowing our son is safe and happy while we work is a huge relief. We love all the updates, especially the photos showing our son learning, having fun with his class/teachers.

Very positive. My child has clearly learned a lot at this school and is developing well socially.

I could not be happier with the excellent care that my daughter receives. I know that her advanced development and happy demeanor is largely due to the wonderful care she receives at La Petite

We love La Petite! The teachers are the most nurturing and kind people. I've seen both of my children grow attached to multiple teachers over a couple of years. They learn so much every day. I love getting updates on their activities so that we can talk about what they did at school at home. Sometimes they want to teach us what they learned!

This school has been amazing. My child loves coming to school and enjoys Ms.Kelsey and Ms.Krista very much. They both do amazing jobs preparing and teaching the children. I couldnt ask for two better teachers. My child has made many friends and school is all he talks about when we get home. My child is happy so I am very happy!

Verified Shopper
We have loved having our boys at La Petite. We are so thankful they have such caring staff and teachers. I feel that my kids are safe there, and I appreciate everything staff does to make sure my children receive the best care and continue to learn. Good job and keep it up!
Verified Shopper
I was nervous about going back to work and leaving my 8 week old in a new environment. The minute we walked into the facility, the staff were warm and welcoming. Being able to keep up to date with what my child is doing during the day thru the brightwheel app gave me a sense of relief. The teachers keep in constant contact, always giving me a warm report at the end of the day, and that is reassuring
as mom to a little one. We absolutely could not have picked a better place for our baby.
