Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Knoxville, TN! My name is Jatina, and I am the director here at our Farragut location. I have worked at La Petite Academy for over 15 years and received my bachelor's degree from the University of Tennessee!
My staff and I are proud to announce that we are a star quality child care program that offers families an outstanding early education experience! Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool and other early education programs with all classrooms incorporating the STEM approach to learning with our new curriculum.
Our highly-trained staff maintains a friendly and inviting atmosphere that is conductive to optimal learning. Together, we have over 100 years of experience working with children, and our teachers receive ongoing training to hone their skills.
We encourage parents to be involved and to participate in monthly activities and special events. Our school is equipped with safety features that enable us to keep our students safe and secure throughout the day.
Safety is of the upmost importance at our location. We are closely following guidance from the CDC and local health authorities to provide a safe, secure, and healthy environment for your child while at school. Parents, visitors and vendors are restricted to the front office at this time. When entering the building, everyone must go through a health screening that includes a temperature check and inquiry of any symptoms of illness within the household, sanitation of their hands and socially distancing themselves 6 feet apart from others.
If you are looking for a loving family atmosphere that is recognized for its innovation, leadership and reputation for excellence in early education, then call La Petite Academy in Knoxville, TN and schedule a tour today!
