Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Powell, OH. We are located at the corner of Home Road and Sawmill Parkway. My name is Shelly and I am the director of this nationally accredited school for Infant care, Preschool and School-Age programs. I have an associate's degree in early childhood education and 30 years of experience. I've been with La Petite Academy for 24 years.

My staff and I enjoy interacting with our families and seeing the children develop into lifelong learners. We have low turnover and teachers are certified in First Aid and CPR. Our management team has over 70 years of combined experience in early childhood.

We have new technology in our Preschool, Pre-K and School-Age classes! Preschool and Pre-K children have iPads with educational apps and games. Plus, our Preschool class will have an Inspire Plus interactive table and our Pre-K class will feature a STEM Lab with hands-on learning experiences in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. For School-Agers, we have tripods for movie making, robots for coding, a new gaming system, and more!

We provide students with a safe and nurturing environment that enhances learning through interactive activities and lesson plans. We value the relationships we have with our families and make it a priority to keep them involved with ongoing communication.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

At La Petite Academy, we believe you will see your child's accomplishments the same way we do - as a product of our excellent staff and curriculum. We are currently serving the Powell and Delaware families. Please stop by or call to schedule a tour!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
We have loved every teacher we’ve had at the school. My older son misses his teachers. I feel like everyone there truly cares about my kids and is excited to see them.

We have been thrilled with la petite. The teachers are absolutely incredible and LOVE all of the kids in the class. It’s so reassuring to know that my toddler is getting the loving attention, patience (!), and focus that she needs every day. Her teachers always have stories to tell me about cute things she said/did during the day, and my daughter talks about them often when we are at home and how nice
they are. She’s learning new things every day and enjoys telling us about it after school. She gets very excited for all of the fun crafts, stories, and extra activities that they have during the day.The director, Shelly, is the nicest woman and always says hello and makes time to talk, especially if I have any concerns to ask about. She has never minimized any concern I’ve brought up, and has great follow-up even weeks later to check in. Overall, La Petit Powell is the perfect blend for us of nurturing teachers and advanced curriculum! We are very happy here.

We truly could not be happier. All of the staff we have interacted with seem genuinely happy to be there and to care for the children. They’re understanding and open with communication, and our daughter has absolutely blossomed since starting at LaPetite.
Verified Shopper
This has been such a great school for our son. Everyone is so welcoming, friendly and always has a smile to share. We get pictures and updates throughout the day of different activities he is doing and it is so fun to look in on his day. We have been very happy with our experience at this school.
Verified Shopper
Our director Shelly Hackbarth is amazing. I love the school because the teachers are not changing regularly. I see the same amazing people each day for the past 2 years. I love it. We are greeted happily each day. They address me and my son by our names. We have had tremendous service to help with my scheduling. I have had my 2 other children at day care centers and this is by far the very best.
Verified Shopper
My daughter has been going to La Petite for years, and she's made long-lasting friendships. They always have great activities for the kids and take them on great field trips.
Great staff! Always so friendly and very professional.
