Welcome to La Petite Academy of Oklahoma City. We are a 3-star NECPA Accredited educational program that is safe, secure, and full of actively engaged learners. Our school environment is interactive and collaborative, where we learn together and where children discover the joy of learning. As a STEM educator, science, technology, engineering, and math are integrated into everything we do in the classroom. Our collaborative, nurturing classrooms offer programs that range from infant care to school-age clubs.
During these unprecedented times, we are doing everything we can to promote a healthy and clean environment. It all starts at the front door. We are taking temperatures, wearing mask, limiting classroom access, dining safely, but still healthy, and keeping things clean through increased hand-washing, cleaning, and sanitizing. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local authorities, to enhance our already robust health and safety procedures. After all, your child’s well-being is our top priority.
Also, for our school-aged students, we have instituted The Prep Lab to continue to educate them while school is out and to prepare them academically for next school year. Prep Lab has two components. The first component is supporting school-age children with their distance learning assigned by their elementary schools. The second component is a summer camp enhanced with a more academic focus to help reduce learning loss. Each student will receive workbooks focusing on key math and literacy skills that the kids will complete while in camp.
Lastly, we have WatchMeGrow live video streaming service COMING SOON to our location. This gives our families the convenience of being able to view their children’s activities in our classrooms in real time, at any time, on their computer, phone, or tablet, with secured access for additional peace of mind.
We invite you to call and schedule a tour of our school today!
