Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy in Lee's Summit, MO. My name is Vicki and I am the academy director. I have been director at this location since 2001 and I have been a teacher and a manager since 1994. I also have a bachelor's degree in elementary education with a concentration in psychology. Drawing from this experience, I can confidently say that La Petite Academy offers the best Infant Care and Private Preschool in Lee's Summit, MO.
Our school is nationally accredited by NECPA. The standards that we follow are higher than the State of Missouri Child Daycare Licensing Standards. Our CPR/First Aid certified teachers also have a higher level of education and in-service training hours per year. You will love staying connected all day long with your child, through our mobile app, brightwheel. This app allows the teachers to send photos and updates via text and email. We are also excited to announce that this fall, we will be offering WatchMeGrow, a live streaming program that will allow you to view your child's classroom!
We have new technology in our school-age classroom including iPads with apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding and more! For younger children we have optional enrichment classes including karate and dance.
We value the relationships we have with our families and work hard to prepare children for the next step in their education. We realize the past months have brought many changes and we want to help support your family with flexible scheduling or assistance with remote learning for your school-age child. We offer this in a safe and healthy environment, where everyone is screened daily at the door and the teachers are required to wear masks.
We hope you will come and tour our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Lee's Summit, MO and become part of the La Petite family!
