Welcome to Our School

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Lawrence, KS! My name is Kristen and I am the director. I have a bachelor's degree in human resources as well as 22 years of experience as a teacher and manager. Drawing from this experience, I can confidently say La Petite Academy offers the best infant daycare and private preschool in Lawrence.

I run this school like everyone involved is an extension of my own family - the children, parents, and teachers. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan a lot of events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure our families meet each other and develop strong relationship as well.

I find it rewarding when I hear children telling their parents about the great day they had and how much fun they had with their teachers. We are fortunate to have an outstanding staff dedicated to children and families. More than half of our teachers have over five years of teaching experience. All of our teacher's receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state.

We value the relationships we have with our families and work hard to involve them in their child's growth and development through our program. During this uncertain time, we have put into place a few things to keep our children, teachers, and families safe. Our wonderful staff all wear masks and we are taking temperatures for each person who comes in the building. By the end of 2020, we are going to live stream with our in-house cameras due to not allowing the parents into the building for less exposure for the children and staff. We have enhanced our school-age children's curriculum to help with continuing their education this summer. We have started Prep Lab with school-age children, they are receiving one hour per day of math and literacy.
