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 six 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.

Research shows summer learning loss is real. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s a greater risk of learning loss because there have been additional weeks of lost class time. The Prep Lab is designed to keep school-agers on course with their studies.
Our teachers will be trained to support distance learning, as well as to integrate key math and literacy skills practice into summer camp – alongside thematic, fun, activity-based projects.

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

Some enhancements in the classrooms include iPads with educational apps; flexible seating options so children can move as they learn; hands-on STEM activities with robots for early coding.
In our School-Age classroom, your child will find an immersive educational environment that is the perfect setting for productive, engaging mornings and afternoons, as we help them to be thinkers, makers, and doers. Some enhancements in this classroom include:

Some of the most important wiring of our brains takes place in the first five years. Children's early experiences and the quality of their care and relationships are crucial during this time. I am honored to have the opportunity to have such an impact on a child's life!
Education: Child Development Associate (In Progress)
Certifications: CPR/First Aid
I chose to be an early childhood educator because we play such an important role in a child’s development. We inspire young minds, expose them to the joys of learning, and give them the foundation for lifelong success!
