Welcome to La Petite Academy educational preschool in Omaha, NE, serving the Millard Community.
Our school provides care for Infants as well as Preschool and other age-specific programs. I strive to create a warm, welcoming, and safe environment. To ensure the children and their families stay healthy and safe, we follow specific health and safety procedures such as: face coverings required for all adults entering the building, visitors and parents are not allowed to walk back to the classrooms, health and temperature checks happen upon arrival, and throughout the day, cleaning and sanitizing throughout the day in each classroom, and specific hand washing procedures. Our group sizes are limited and if anyone were to come down with an illness, they are separated immediately from the group.
We are excited to offer technology in our School-Age classroom. Enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding, a new gaming system and a secure WiFi network for homework. Along with this new and exciting environment, we have added The Prep Lab, to ensure our children going back to school this fall will be ready. This has supported our students with the loss of education during school closures and has prepped them 100 percent for their upcoming school year.
We have an outstanding staff dedicated to our children and families here in Omaha. All of our staff is CPR and first aid certified and most of our teachers have over five years of teaching experience. All of our teachers receive monthly trainings and participate in a yearly Professional Development Day.
Since our school opened in 1983, we have offered a high-quality learning environment for children. If you are searching for education-driven child care in Omaha, NE, then call La Petite Academy today to schedule a tour!

I have a passion for education and love being a part of each child's growth and development at all ages. After teaching Preschool and Pre-K for a few years, I decided to change my focus to support a team of teachers and provide them with everyday resources.
Education: Bachelor's Degree in Education from University of Nebraska at Omaha
I have an incredible passion for curriculum and early childhood education. After teaching music in a private and middle school setting, I decided to focus more on early childhood. I began my journey with La Petite in 2012 as a preschool teacher and have been an assistant director since 2015.
