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.
Our center maintains an open-door policy so that you are able to speak with us about what is best for your child. We provide many opportunities for our parents and our teachers to meet each other and develop strong relationships.
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 truly believe that every child is important and special so would love to welcome you into our La Petite family.
