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 25 years of experience in early child development. I firmly believe the most important thing - especially during these ever-changing and trying times - is that every single parent and every single child feels safe within our school. We have a fierce dedication in our school to not only education, but also to the safety and well being of each person in our building including children, parents, and staff alike.
We are committed to following CDC and local health and safety guidelines. We have modified drop off procedures to ensure the least amount of potential contact. Staff wear face coverings for their personal protection and that of our children. We also ask that any adults entering the building use a face covering. Cleaning and sanitation procedures continue as always.
We are know how important it is to stay connected to your child's experience away from home. We are pleased to offer parents access to brightwheel and WatchMeGrow platforms. Brightwheel allows teachers to share photos and real-time updates about the care and learning happening throughout the day. WatchMeGrow now allows parents video access to their child's classroom experience.
As we move into the Back to School season we are keeping ourselves flexible as plans for school-age children look to remain fluid. We remain aware of the different plans and possibilities for students so that we will be able to assist families with a safe place for school-age children who might be with us after school or all day for distance learning.
Please give us call if you have any questions about our health and safety procedures or if you are looking for a safe, education-driven daycare in Papillion, NE. Call to schedule your in-person or virtual tour today!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
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

For the past 25 years I have been blessed to work in a field that offers me the opportunity to make a difference in the the lives of children and their families. I am also lucky enough to work with many talented early childhood professionals that create educational and meaningful experiences in our school every day.
