Welcome to La Petite Academy in North Las Vegas, NV! My name is Kim and I am the academy director at this school where we provide Infant Care, Preschool programs and more. I have 26 years of experience as an early childhood educator and have worked in all aspects of early child care.
Our employees present the Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Centennial, Nellis and Creech communities with the highest caliber of care and education. We have 162 years of combined experience. Staff members take a minimum of 30 training hours per year as well as monthly training at our school. Every teacher is CPR/First Aid certified and trained in SIDS, Shaken Baby, Signs and Symptoms of Illness, Abuse and Neglect, Food and Medicine Allergies, Emergency Preparedness and Response and Positive Guidance techniques.
We have a full curriculum focusing on the specific age groups in each classroom. In addition, we also provide a Kindergarten Readiness Program for Pre-K children.
We focus on the safety of each child in our care and our building remains locked throughout the day. We monitor who comes through our front door during our hours of operation and a member of management is always present. We also offer a mobile app providing parents with daily photos and updates.
We know that being apart from your child can be a challenge. That's why we want to make sure you feel connected throughout the day, sharing in all your child's experiences. Our new WatchMeGrow technology allows you to view your child's activities in the classroom on any smart device or computer. Deployed or traveling, you will be able to see your child/children learn, play and grow every day.

I have had the privilege of working in early childhood since 1993. Together, with a team of amazing and creative teachers, I am committed to providing your family with a loving and developmentally-sound foundation for a lifetime of learning.
I have been with La Petite Academy for 21 years. I started out as a School-Age teacher and quickly moved up to a management position. I love working with children and am so glad that I made this a career.
Education: Associate's Degree in Elementary Education
I am currently the team lead and safety captain. I enjoy working alongside a great team, both in and out of the classrooms. I am a highly-motivated team player. The children inspire me to come to work every day with a smile on my face.
