Welcome to La Petite Academy of Lithonia, GA! My name is Ms. Tanya and I am the Academy Director. I have over 20 years of experience in Early Childhood Education.
As we navigate through these special times, we want to reassure our families that we are doing all that we can to ensure the health and safety of our children and their families. In addition to our regular cleaning procedures, all staff must wear masks while they are working, no adults other than staff are in our building, parents wear masks at arrival and pick-up, staff receive children and return then to their families at the end of the day, everyone's hands are washed numerous times a day and temperature checks are conducted on staff and children daily.
We now also have a new component to our program, Prep Lab. The Prep Lab is designed for children 5 to 12 years of age. Parents may enroll through the regular enrollment process and the Prep Lab is part of the normal daily schedule. The Prep Lab is to support the distance learning that school-age children are doing now.
As we incorporate more technology into our program, we will soon have the WatchMeGrow cameras available to parents. Parents will be able to see their child throughout the day. We will have both interior and exterior cameras and our main entry is equipped with a security system. Along with that, we offer families a mobile app that provides them with real-time updates of their child's day!
We also partner with Cuties Care, so quality diapers and wipes are included and supplied in all our nursery and potty training classrooms. We provide breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack as part of our Grow Fit Program. With schools in the DeKalb county giving virtual instruction this year we will not provide transportation to our area schools.
Please come on by for a tour of our La Petite Academy in Lithonia, GA!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
