Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our nationally-accredited La Petite Academy in Papillion, NE! My name is Tracy and I am the center director. I have a psychology background and more than 21 years of experience in early child development.

Our infant, toddler, preschool and pre-k curricula are designed to meet each child’s developmental needs and to help them reach appropriate milestones. We offer an excellent School Age program and provide transportation, snacks and homework help after school.

Together, our teachers have more than 130 years of experience. They are continuously educating themselves to be the best of the best with monthly training's and staff development days. Our talented Food Specialist is dedicated to ensuring our children receive healthy and delicious meals each day.

We are located off HWY 370 and 96th St., next to the Walnut Creek Lake recreation area. We serve families not only from Papillion, but also neighboring communities such as La Vista, Omaha, Bellevue, and Millard. Our priority is safety and security, and each enrolled family is assigned a unique code that they use upon entering our building.

If you are looking for a loving, nurturing, education-driven daycare in Papillion, NE then give our La Petite Academy a call to schedule your tour today!

We loved the center! Miss everyone very much!!
All the staff members were so amazing and you could tell they cared about the kids! They helped make our transition so easy and adapted to our kids. The day care was the cleanest I've seen! Cant say enough good things about them.
They impress me everyday. They are patient, loving, and everything I could possibly think of in childcare. They are a dream come true
I have only had good experiences interacting with the director and staff. They are caring and experienced.
Miss Nichole goes above and beyond with my son. She does a terrific job of communicating through the brightwheel app. I love that the app is updated in real time. It's very reassuring to see how much fun my son is having throughout the day. Nichole is very responsive to questions and my son's needs. He has made signficiant advances in verbal, social, and motor skills since beginning the program just
three months ago.

This school is AMAZING. Our daughter had a bad experience at her previous school and had changed into an unhappy girl who concentrated on the negative. Within a week at La Petite, she was transformed back into our happy, out going little girl. She loves it there and the teachers are amazing. She enjoys learning in the environment you have created. She has grown exponentially in her skills. Also,
I love how you teach them to take space when they are acting out and communicate if there is a challenge. I feel like I have fantastic partners in raising my daughter into a great human being. You all are soo wonderful, thank you for all that you do each day. The difference that you make each day, is a difference that will last her lifetime.
