Welcome to Our School

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.

* Temperature check upon arrival for anyone that is entering the building.

* A cloth face covering and gloves should be worn. (New look, same big smiles underneath).

*Limiting classroom access

*Wellness check throughout the day

*Keep things clean with increased handwashing, and cleaning and sanitizing of our spaces

WatchMeGrow livestreaming video access is now live! Enjoy peace of mind with secure access to the camera in your child's classroom from your device.

It is a friendly and welcoming environment. The Director and teachers are always willing to listen to concerns and resolve them accordingly. Keep up the good work. Thanks for all you do.
Good reception from all staff and teachers. It is a warm and friendly environment that ensures Parents have a piece of mind when they drop off thier child or children to go to work.
Director and staff have been friendly and welcoming since we started taking our child to this daycare. Communication is great, curriculum is good, and our child is safe and happy. It is very important to us that the people caring for our child while we are at work treat him how we would and as far as I can tell, La Petite staff do!
The classrooms are well staffed and the teachers are quite attentive. I like that the classes are small so each child may get an equitable amount of attention. The staff communicates well and often informs us of the small milestones each day.
