Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Lexington, KY. My name is Christa and I am the director! I have my associate's degree in early childhood education and 18 years of experience as an early education provider.

We are excited to announce that we have recently moved to our new location at 148 Malibu Drive. You'll find all the things you love - secure school environment, smart technology and amazing teachers, plus much more!

Our school offers Infant/Toddler Care, superior Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs as well as a dynamic School-Age program. Our highly-qualified staff has over 70 years of combined child care experience. Teachers receive monthly training, CPR and First Aid certification and additional ongoing training provided by the state.

We maintain an open-door policy for any family who would like to talk and we are always available either in the office, by phone or email. Here at La Petite, we bring families and friends together through monthly events including luncheons, holiday programs and our Fall Festival.

We look forward to meeting you! Schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Lexington, KY today!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
We have had a great experience so far and couldn't be more pleased with La Petite! The staff are amazing and they truly care about providing the best experience to all the kids in the building.
It’s been great. We really love this school and their flexibility and overall concern and effort with the children. They have been so patient and kind.
I am very grateful to the staff of LaPetite Lexington for genuinely caring about and getting to know the kids and families who attend there, including my little one. We've had a great experience, and couldn't recommend them more highly.
Aidan is having a blast. The staff are awesome and the attention he is getting from the staff and friends he is making in the classroom is second to none.
LaPetite Academy and their use of Brightwheel has given me so much peace of mind! My little one loves her teachers, and the other students, and seeing those little updates on their app throughout the day let me know she is getting the care and attention I can't give her while I'm at work. At 2 years old, she is counting, singing her ABC's, and has memorized her favorite books. It's always fun when
she comes home and teaches us a new song from school. Super grateful for all of the hard work of Miss Tori and Miss Leslie in her classroom, and our location directors, Miss Christa and Miss Rachel. They've been amazing to work with!

We love it and love the new location. My daughter loves to come to school everyday. She has learned so much and all of the teachers and administrators know her by name and make her feel welcome and loved.
From the day we took our tour we fell in love with la petite. Rachael was so helpful and really helped us with choosing this place of childcare. The teachers are so welcoming and you can tell they actually care for the children. It’s always very clean and the security they have to get in the building and in the rooms is great. Would recommend to anyone with childcare needs.
Excellent. Above all expectations. My family has had a very difficult time recently, and your staff went above and beyond. I recommend this school all over the place. I am such a fan!
We love La Petite and have had a wonderful experience thus far!
We have loved LaPetite. The teachers have been caring and confident and our child always greets us with a smile and says I had a good day!
