Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Knoxville, TN! My name is Rebecca Walker and I am the academy director. I have worked at La Petite Academy for five years.

Our school has the finest infant child care, toddler and preschool programs in the West Knoxville area. We are a 3-star school, which is the highest rating a school can achieve. We have an open-door policy and instill in our families the confidence to come to any staff member with a concern or a comment.

Majority of our teachers have over five years of experience and combined, they have over 100 years of experience in early childhood education. We are constantly participating in new training throughout the year to continue our education in child development.

We take many security precautions to make sure that our students and families are kept safe. Our building has a locked front door that requires a code and all family members are provided with their own personal code when picking up and dropping off.

We invite you to schedule a tour of our amazing La Petite Academy in Knoxville, TN!
