My name is Gretchen and I am the director of La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Las Vegas, NV. Originally from Syracuse, New York, I moved to Las Vegas in 2018 in pursuit of new adventures. During my career in child care I have been a nanny, lead teacher, after school teacher, residential counselor, educational specialist, and director. I have a bachelor's degree in human development/child psychology and am currently earning a master's degree in clinical mental health counseling/marriage and family therapy.
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. Our unique curriculum follows children in our Infant through Pre-K programs and is tailored to your child's unique needs and interests.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
Please contact us today for more information or to schedule a tour. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our La Petite family.

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!
