Welcome to Our School

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 lifelong 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.

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.

Schedule a tour today to see for yourself why La Petite Academy is the premiere provider of educational child care in Knoxville/Powell, TN!

As first time parents, we were very anxious to send our infant to daycare, but we have been blown away by how great of an experience we have had because of her teacher and staff.

As new parents, we were very nervous about daycare. Everyone has been absolutely wonderful taking care of our daughter. She has grown socially and learns something new everyday. They have made this a very pleasurable experience for all of us. Our daughter gets so excited and loves going to “school”!
