Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Nashville, TN! Our academy was established in 1986 and has a long-standing reputation of family involvement. My name is Melissa and I am the director. I have had extensive educational training through the state and am confident that our Infant Care and Preschool programs are second to none.
My staff and I enjoy interacting with families and the community we serve. We value our relationships and enjoy getting parents involved in the school to help foster their children's growth and development. To boost parental participation, we offer monthly programs and events.
We have a dedicated and skilled staff with 100 percent having five or more years of service with us in Nashville. Our teachers have a total of 138 years of combined experience in early childhood education. They are all certified in CPR and first aid, and trained in TN Early Learning Development Standards.
Health and Hygiene: Conducting a health check has always been a part of ensuring the health and safety of all the children in our care and during current times this practice has heightened importance.

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 creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
