Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Pickerington, Ohio. My name is Joe and I am the academy director. I have been with the company for the past 6 years and within the public school system 3 years prior.

We offer infant care beginning at 6 weeks of age, as well as a full or part time preschool program focusing on kindergarten readiness and a school-age program for before and after school care and full time care during school breaks for children up to 10 years of age.

This year we are happy to announce the addition of The Prep Lab, our program for our elementary school students. This program bridges potential learning gaps over the summer as well as keeping them on course during distance learning. The Prep Lab integrates key math and literacy skills that bring added excitement and education to fun, activity-based projects.

We are currently a 2 Star rated Step Up to Quality center through the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services. We have multiple educators will over 20 years of experience. Our teachers participate in yearly training to stay up-to-date on best practices and child development.

We are committed to continuing to make the health and safety of the children our top priority. We closely follow guidance from the CDC as well as local and state authorities to provide the safest and cleanest environment possible. We strive to ensure that we are operating in the safest possible fashion all while promoting a fun environment where children are able to learn and grow.

Coming soon: WatchMeGrow—a streaming video service parents can use to take a peek at their child throughout the day. It will be available live from any browser, tablet, or mobile phone.

Please reach out via phone at (614) 755-4055 or email at with any questions. We want to help you find the best possible fit for you and your family in regards to your child's education and care! I look forward to hearing from you!
