Welcome to La Petite Academy an early education center in Kent, WA!
We offer care and education from one and walking to five years old! Our early education programs are designed specifically for the children enrolled in our classrooms. Aware, Care and Share is how we approach a child's learning journey. Be sure and ask us what this means when you tour our center! By providing children a healthy, safe environment for learning, an excellent curriculum, and caring teachers, each child can have a brilliant beginning.
Our center offers a before and after school care program for children enrolled in certain Kent elementary schools, as well as a summer camp program.
Safety Protocols are in place for the health and safety of our children, families, and employees. All parents, guardians and staff must wear a face covering. School-age children are to also wear masks while attending. Hand washing, cleaning and disinfecting is increased at specific times throughout the day to prioritize health and safety at our school.
We keep parents connected to their children's day!
We offer live streaming video as a way for parents to have a view into their child's classroom. Using the family communication app, we send pictures and videos to our parents, and have the option to message each other too.
Our teachers participate in training opportunities throughout the year, staying current on best practices and early educational tools.
