Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Oak Ridge, TN! My name is Anita and I am the director. I have worked for La Petite since 1999 and have been a director since 2006. I am very excited about all of the wonderful programs we have here, including infant care, preschool, pre-kindergarten and school-age programs.

My staff and I run this school here in Oak Ridge like everyone involved is an extension our own families. We create a safe, warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan events for everyone to participate in and we work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships.

We are fortunate to have an outstanding, long-term staff that is dedicated to our children and families. Combined, we have more than 162 years of experience! All of our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state.

We understand this is a scary time for families and we want to make sure everyone is aware that we are doing our very best to keep all the children safe while in our care. Families are dropping off and picking up their child from the front door. We take temperatures of all staff and children before the enter the building. If it is necessary for someone to come inside the building, they must be screened, wear a face covering, and are restricted to the front lobby only. We have a strict protocol on cleaning, using bleach and disinfectants, and done throughout the day.

We are now offering Watch Me Grow, as well as Bright Wheel. You can sign up and be able to view your child throughout the day. I know this is comforting for families while you are away from them!

We love this school. My son has activity filled days with his friends, and he is always happy when we pick him up. Everyone employed at this school is friendly and provides a loving environment.
The teachers truly care about my daughter and treat her like one of their own. That means more to us than anything!
We enjoy sending our daughter to this school, she seems to be learning to socialize with other children which is a fundamental at her age.
I've had a very good experience with this daycare. My daughter loves her teachers
We love the effort the teachers put into crafts and pictures they send.
I always feel welcomed and I feel that my son is safe and loved. It is important to me that I am accepted and my concerns are heard. The directer and staff at the Oak Ridge LaPetite have never made me feel insecure or dumb about any concerns I bring up. Being a full-time working parent is tough enough, so I feel lucky to have an extended family at LaP!
Always having fun, love the families, great learning experience!
We are incredibly thankful that our daughter was able to enroll at La Petite in Oak Ridge, TN. The staff is wonderful and makes our daughter feel loved and special on a daily basis. It is the absolute hardest thing to leave your child in someone else's care while you have to work, so it makes me feel great knowing she is at a place that she will be taken care of, challenged, and truly loved on a daily
basis. We cannot say enough nice things!
