Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy, an educational daycare in Olive Branch, MS! My name is DaShanetha and I am the academy director. I have over 10 years of experience working with children ages six weeks to 12 years of age. I majored in early childhood education and I have my associates degree in science. I am currently working towards obtaining my bachelor's degree in professional studies with a concentration on leadership.

Here at La Petite, health, safety ,and education is at the top of our priority list. We are doing everything we can to provide a healthy, safe,and clean environment. We welcome our parents with wellness at our front door by taking temperatures and washing hands upon arrival. We are also limiting classroom access and following the guidance from the CDC as well as state and local authorities to enhance our already robust health and safety procedures.

We offer a specialized curricula for Infants, Toddlers and Twos, as well as in our Preschool and

Pre-Kindergarten programs. We’re excited to also introduce The Prep Lab – a School-Age program designed to support continued learning between the end of on-site public school classes and the start of next school year on-site learning. With The Prep Lab, we’re helping to ensure these students are grade -level ready by bridging potential learning gaps between school years.

We will also be introducing the WatchMeGrow live streaming video service! We will be making this feature available to our customers at no additional charge as part of our broad company-wide effort to better connect with the families we serve. Not all schools are connected at this time, but this service is coming. All safety and security procedures are strictly enforced by our staff to keep our children safe.

We educate children from not only Olive Branch, but Memphis and Horn Lake as well!

We are open from 6:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m. Call us today to schedule a tour of our beautiful La Petite Academy in Olive Branch, MS. !

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Everything about this school screams awesome !!!!
As a single parent,I feel very confident every day at work knowing that daughter is in good care for after care services at La Petite. The staff is amazing!
I love this place. My daughter had been going since she was 1 and she is now 4. The staff are such a joy to be around and are very detailed when it comes to my daughter. I am loving the Brightwheel app that’s keeps me updated throughout the day when it comes to my daughter. I can send a text to the teacher and receive a replay within min , but no less than an hour. I love seeing the videos and photos
of my sweet babygirl throughout the day and I can even add her grandparent so they see her as well.. Lapetite 7593 You Rock!!!!

Overall experience is great. The staff shows compassion to every child and Ms. Tony is very interactive with her students.
My daughter loves to go to school now. When she attended other schools she did not want to go to school.
