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! 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.

You will be able to monitor all of your child's day with our brightwheel mobile app. This app allows our teachers to send you updates and photos via text and email. Also, coming this fall, WatchMeGrow which allows you to live stream your child's classroom so you don't miss a thing!

Health and safety has always been our top priority but we have stepped up our measures by having all of our staff wear face masks and doing daily health checks of the children and staff. We realize that many things have changed in the past few months and we want to support you so if you need a flexible schedule or help with your school-age child's remote learning, give us a call or stop by to schedule and tour and learn more!

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
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!
Love the teachers and the learning!!! My daughter learns so much on a daily basis! The kids are so kind and loving to each other, which tells me they are being tought proper behavior. Love La Petite!!!
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!
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.

Overall, we have been very happy with La Petite. The teachers and leaders are great to work with and provide a positive atmosphere for the children.
We are very happy with our school. The structure has not only helped my child learn academically but also learn to play and interact with other children and teachers. I am impressed with how engaged the children are and how much has gone into helping them learn in fun and new ways. It is evident that you all love the kids and love your jobs. Thank you for taking care of my baby!
Our two year old has been at this la petite since he was born. The teachers are amazing and so kind! Cannot day enough about the wonderful staff at this location
