Welcome to La Petite Academy in Mishawaka, IN! My name is Cindy and I am the academy director. I have an associates degree in early childhood education and more than 20 years of experience working with children. Drawing from this experience, I can confidently say that La Petite Academy offers the best infant daycare and private preschool in Mishawaka.
Our academy was established in 1980 and has since presented Mishawaka, St. Joseph and Elkhart Counties with the highest caliber of child care and early education. From the coded entry to the spacious playgrounds, we provide a safe and fun learning environment for all our children.
We have been awarded National Early Childhood Program Accreditation by the National Accreditation Commission. We are also proud to be part of Indiana's Paths To QUALITY program, and have a Level Four rating. The average length of employment for our teachers is five years, and some of our staff members have more than 20 years of experience with us.
In this challenging and uncertain time, we remain committed to doing everything possible to support our community and to provide families with peace of mind. That starts with providing a safe, secure,and healthy environment for your child when they’re away from home.
Our current health and safety practices include:
*Screening staff and children upon arrival for temperature, symptoms
*Providing protective face coverings for all staff members to wear when working with children
*Having parents remain in common areas only
*Conducting regular wellness checks throughout the day
*Eliminating family-style dining, only serving pre-plated (or teacher-plated) meals
*Enhancing our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices
