Welcome to La Petite Academy New Hope! Our school offers care for Infants, as well as Preschool and other age-specific programs.
Our school is nationally-accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation. We are fortunate to have an outstanding staff dedicated to our children and families. All of our teachers are first aid and CPR certified and participate in monthly training.
We make health and safety our number one priority. With COVID-19, we have made many changes to our way of life. Our teachers are wearing masks throughout the day and we have a morning routine of assessing staff and students' health. We have very strict cleaning and sanitizing protocols that are followed each day to provide a safe environment for the students to learn.
Beginning in November, our families will have access to Watch Me Grow. This will allow families to see the learning happening in their child's classroom!
For our school-age children we have also added The Prep Lab to help support literacy and math skills through the summer. School may look different this year for our school-age students, and we are preparing to assist them with any unique learning needs this school year may bring.
We look forward to meeting you and your family very soon here at La Petite Academy in New Hope, MN!
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

I have always had a passion for working with children of all ages. As an academy director, I strive to build a sense of community and foster a lifelong love of learning for all. I have over 20 years of experience in the child care field and love helping to shape the minds and hearts of children everywhere! In my off time I enjoy spending time with my husband, two daughters, and our bearded dragon Levi. I love READING, taking hikes in nature, Lake Superior and going to Twins games.
