Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Memphis, TN. My name is April, I am the director at La Petite Academy on New Allen Road. Here at La Petite Academy, we offer exceptional childcare for students ranging from ages 6 weeks to 12 years old. I have been working in child care for more than 14 years.

Our school is located on New Allen, at the intersection of Hawkins Mill and New Allen. We have been in the Raleigh/Frayser area for more than 30 years. We strive to create a warm environment and maintain an open-door policy for our parents.

I know that searching for a safe and healthy childcare center can be a little alarming right now due to COVID -19. I can assure you we are doing everything we can to provide a healthy, safe, and clean environment. Each day we will welcome you with a wellness check at our front door which includes taking each person's temperature and washing hands thoroughly upon entry of the building. All teacher and staff members are required to wear face mask to help cut down on the spread of germs.

We absolutely love our parents and grandparents, but for now we are limiting classroom access for our little ones' health and safety. We take pride in sanitizing our building several times throughout the day. A special sanitation process takes place nightly when closing .

Our goal is to cultivate strong relationships with our families. Most of our teachers have been working in child care for many years and continue to further their education in early childhood. We conduct training on a monthly basis and each staff member is trained in First Aid/CPR. We provide a safe and secure building for you and your child by giving each authorized individual a secure code for entering the facility.

Call us today to schedule a tour of La Petite Academy located on New Allen Road. We always want to work with parents and their specific schedules. Please feel free to call or visit to discuss your particular needs. Find out how we can exceed your expectations!
