Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Welcome to Our School

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Lawrence, KS! My name is Kelsey and I am the director. I have a bachelor's degree in applied behavioral analysis as well as 17 years of experience as a teacher and manager.

We as a team, management and teachers, strive to create a welcoming environment for all families. We conduct parent teacher conferences throughout the year to maintain close communication about your child’s education. We have an open door policy to ensure all your needs and questions are answered.

Our teachers have a passion for teaching and bring many years of experience to the school. Teachers are certified in first aid and CPR and receive monthly and ongoing training provided by the state. All of our staff members are trained to use our on-site AED machine in case of an emergency.

We have had to update a few procedures during these uncertain times, where our wonderful staff are all wearing masks and we are taking temperatures for each person who comes in the building. By the end of 2020, we are going live with our in-house cameras! Our facility is secure and requires an access code for entry.

Please schedule a tour of our fantastic La Petite Academy educational child care today!

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
The teachers really love our children and it is wonderful knowing they truly care about them and their growth.
Everyone is very kind. My kid has made friends and loves her teachers. I love the updates on Brightwheel, and I appreciate the time each teacher takes to make my kiddo feel comfortable and happy. Thank you.
I am satisfied with the overall care that has been rendered to my child. I am always impressed by the level of physical activities and fun tasks that the teachers engage in with my child.
Above and beyond our expectations. They know and love our daughter, we are always satisfied with the care they give.
We've had a great experience with the school. Matilda developed very well there. And the teachers, director, and staff helped lots.
Everyone does a great job! The flexibility with our schedule has been a lifesaver, and we are very happy with our decision.
I've enjoyed this school overall. The staff and teachers are phenomenal.
We love it! My 3 year old looks forward to going everyday!
Great teachers! I love seeing my child interact and love the people that are taking care of them.
I feel my son (who is autistic) has had an incredibly high-quality experience at this school. He is currently a kindergartener in public school, but has been a part of the La Petite family since he was 15 months old. Some weeks he is there after school two days a week, but when public school is not in session he usually spends all day at La Petite. The teachers here are fantastic and I feel that they
support an environment where all the children can learn and grow in a secure and loving environment.
