Keeping Families Connected

Our families mean the world to us and keeping them connected is one of our main goals. That’s why we created SproutAbout®, our exclusive family communications app that features live streaming video of the classroom and much, much more.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational child care in Omaha, NE! We are both nationally accredited by NECPA and also a member of the Nebraska Quality Rating and Improvement System, Step Up to Quality.

My name is Nicole and as academy director, I would love the opportunity to show you how our programs for Infant care and Preschool will exceed your expectations for an early education provider. I have a bachelor's degree in sociology, medical sociology and youth service agencies. I have had the privilege of working in early childhood education since 2002.

We have a wonderful team of teachers on our staff here in Omaha! Many of our teachers have at least 10 years of experience in early childhood education. Every year, they attend regular training sessions to stay current in the field.

Safety is a top priority at our center. Our building is equipped with a secured door, strict check-in and check-out procedures, and cameras in every room. Visitors to the school must check in with a member of management and show a photo ID.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Since we opened in 1983, we have offered a welcoming, high-quality learning environment for children. If you are looking for an education driven child care serving the Northwest Omaha and Millard communities, then schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy today!
