Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Overland Park, KS! My name is Amber Medlin and I am the director. I have over 15 years experience in education and a bachelor's degree in business.
La Petite Academy is committed to providing young children and their families with high quality Infant, Toddler, Preschool and School-Age programs in an enriched setting. Our school's curriculum and experienced teachers can help your child develop a lifelong love of learning! You will be able to see this yourself with our brightwheel mobile app. This app allows the teachers to send photos and updates via text or email to our families. We are also excited to announce that this fall we will be adding WatchMeGrow. This program allows our parents to live stream their child's classroom so they don't miss a thing!
We have instituted heightened safety and health measures by requiring all our staff to wear face masks and we are doing daily health screening at the door for all students and staff. We realize many changes have taken place the past few months and we want to support you by offering flexible hours or assistance with remote learning for school-age children. Please let us know what we can do for you when you call to schedule a tour at our La Petite Academy in Overland Park, KS conveniently located beside the Hy-Vee off 95th and Antioch.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

I have a passion for young children. I started as a director of the Cubbie program and after having my three children, I started teaching. I taught at a private school in Shawnee for 15 years and I have been in preschool administration for 10 years. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family.
