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.
