Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in the Raleigh area of Memphis, TN! My name is Priscilla and I am the Academy Director. I have a bachelor's degree in English and more than 20 years of experience as a teacher and manager.
Our school for infant care, preschool and private kindergarten is deeply rooted in our community and has a long-standing reputation of family involvement. We plan many events for everyone to participate in here in Memphis and I work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships, too.
The longevity of our staff members at La Petite Memphis ranges from one to 30 years. All staff members participate in ongoing training and continually work to increase their education in child development.
Health and safety is at the top of our priority list and we know it tops yours, too. We are doing everything we can to provide a healthy, safe, and a clean environment including: taking temperatures at the front door; wearing big smiles underneath our face masks; limiting classroom access (we truly love our parents, but just at a distance for now); and continually checking children and staff throughout the day for wellness. For the time being, we have stopped serving our healthy menu family style in favor of pre-plated meals. We have also increased our hand-washing, cleaning and sanitizing. We are closely following the guidance from the CDC as well as state and local authorities to enhance our already robust health and safety procedures.
We are thrilled to introduce the WatchMeGrow live streaming video service! We will be making this feature available to our customers at no additional charge. Stay tuned for more information.
All safety and security procedures are strictly enforced by our staff. Entrances require added security checks and all visitors are greeted at the door and are required to show photo ID. Call us today to schedule a tour of our amazing La Petite Academy in Memphis, TN. We look forward to meeting you!
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
