Welcome to Our School

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Lincoln, NE! My name is Terra and I am the director of this school for Infant Care, Preschool and other age-appropriate programs. I have my Child Development Associate credential and have been working in child care since 1994.

Our school is accredited through NECPA and we work to ensure each child reaches his or her fullest potential and becomes a lifelong learner! I run this center like everyone involved is an extension of my own family and I maintain a safe and warm environment. 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 relationships. Our PAL Parent committee is a very active part of that!

We are excited to offer new technology in our school-age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for moviemaking, robots for coding, a new gaming system and more!

Several of our teachers have more than five years of teaching experience and all of them receive ongoing training, as well as required annual training provided by the state.

Here's what people have to say

4.83 out of 5 stars
Friendly employees and good environment.
My kids love La Petite! On days at home, they are always begging me if they can go daycare instead! My kids have learned so much and I'm amazed at the things they come home knowing how to do!
The teachers are all amazing and really show care and concern for the kids
Great school with caring teachers and a wonderful STEM curriculum that allows our children to question and explore. The app is amazing, too, giving us the ability to keep up with what our children are doing and providing us with pictures and videos to help us ask them about their day.
I love this school and so does my son. He gets to play with other kids and learn in a safe place. A lot of the time he doesn't want to leave. His vocabulary has expanded so much he is talking more. I love La petite and so does my son that's all I need to know.
The director and teachers have been wonderful. Our son attended a prior daycare, which he dreaded going to every day. Now, he actually gets up in the morning ready to go to school. He randomly said yesterday that he loves his new school. This means a lot to us because our son is a shy, cautious, and sensitive boy who does not like transitions. The school must be doing something right!
