My name is Gretchen Lee and I am very excited to be the director of La Petite Academy. Originally from Syracuse, New York, I moved to Las Vegas in 2018 in pursuit of new adventures. During my career I have been a nanny, lead teacher in an infant room, after school teacher, residential counselor, educational specialist, and director.
We provide care and education for children six weeks to five years of age. All of our teachers are certified in CPR/First Aid, and take part in continuing early childhood education hours and receive regular training throughout the year. Combined we have over 129 years of experience.
Security is paramount to us with our keyed entry system, cameras and assigned Safety Captain. Only families and staff have a code to enter our building and there is always a Manager present during hours of operation.
Our unique curriculum follows children in our Infant through Pre-K programs and is tailored to your child's unique needs and interests.

I have been working in child care for 20 years and cannot envision myself doing anything different. I love caring for children and families. Providing a safe and nurturing learning environment is essential for young children and I am thrilled to be a part of that!
