Hello! Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in North Knoxville, TN. I am Keishala, the academy director. I have been with La Petite Academy since 2012 and have been a director since 2016. Based on my experience, I can proudly say that we offer excellent care for children six weeks to 12 years of age in our infant care, preschool and before- and after-school programs. We also offer a seamless curriculum that carries your child from infancy through school age. The foundation set here creates life long learners in all the families we meet.
All of the teachers receive at least 18 hours of training and are CPR and First Aid certified. We have a wonderful group of teachers who really care about the happiness and safety of all of our children.
For our school-age students, we drop off and pick up from Powell Elementary, Halls Elementary and Brickey-McCloud.
To help with the loss of precious school classroom time, we are now offering The Prep Lab. This program is a fun blend of activities and academic based learning that is designed to help bridge the gap while school is closed. We are also able to accommodate a flexible schedule for school age to support flexible school plans.
We are currently taking extra health & safety protocols. These include limited access to the building, doing temperature checks on every child and teacher that enters the building and ensuring all teachers and staff are wearing face masks daily. We want to ensure every child and teacher is safe here.
Coming soon we will be introducing WatchMeGrow. This exciting program will give our enrolled families the ability to view our live stream video feed so you can see all the fun we have! We truly believe that every child is important and special so would love to welcome you into our La Petite family.
