Welcome to La Petite Academy educational child care in Memphis, TN! My name is Tomaka and I am the Academy Director.
The health and safety of our families has always been at the top of our priority list and we know it is top of mind for our families, too. With that, we have enhanced our already rigorous health and safety procedure to ensure that we 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 limiting building and classroom access to staff and children. We take temperatures at the door. We conduct wellness checks on all children and staff throughout the day. We have implemented longer, more frequent hand washing as well as cleaning and sanitizing our spaces throughout the day.
Our school may look a little different, but we are still the same dedicated staff committed to providing a fun, safe, clean, and educational environment for the children in our care.
We have two new exciting programs and services to introduce. WatchMeGrow is a live streaming video service that will be made available to our families at no additional charge. We know our families will love The Prep Lab – a School-Age program designed to support continued learning between the end of on-site public school classes and the start of next school year’s on-site learning. With The Prep Lab, we’re helping to ensure these students are grade-level ready by bridging potential learning gaps between school years.
We always want to work with parents and their specific schedules. Please call or visit the center to discuss your particular needs.
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
