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 21 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.
Safety is very important to us. Due to COVID-19 we have enhanced our safety protocols at the school to make sure that everyone is safe. Parents drop off and pick up their children at the front door. We take the temperature of every person that enters the building. We also do our three step cleaning process more frequently to ensure cleanliness.
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.
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!
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 creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Dance, Soccer, Yoga, Spanish
In our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms your child will discover opportunities to be creative, engage their mind and body, collaborate with friends, and learn new things. Some enhancements in the classrooms include iPads with educational apps; flexible seating options so children can move as they learn; hands-on STEM activities with robots for early coding.
In our School-Age classroom, your child will find an immersive educational environment that is the perfect setting for productive, engaging mornings and afternoons, as we help them to be thinkers, makers, and doers. Some enhancements in this classroom include:
