Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Puyallup, WA. We looks forward to providing a caring and engaging child care environment while offering the social and educational benefits of Kindergarten readiness for your child. My name is Jana and as the Academy Director I encourage you to explore all of the wonderful offerings we have to support your child and your family.

Most important is our culture of health and safety. Our daily routines include hand washing for staff and students at all transition times. Our management team provides temperature and health checks upon arrival of all students and staff. We institute a daily cleaning and sanitizing schedule to ensure continued health and wellness for all.

Our academy has a talented and diverse staff committed to providing a positive, well-rounded education and community for your child. Our teachers participate in ongoing early childhood education in order to stay current on how to best meet the needs of all our students. As a STEM school, we focus on innovation, collaboration and problem-solving to apply the core principles within all of the learning opportunities and curriculum activities we offer. For our elementary school-aged students, we have introduced The Prep Lab, which provides grade-level appropriate math and literacy activities to further encourage their learning while out of the classroom.

We look forward to building a partnership with parents and caregivers in our school community. We have several offerings to invite families into a day at our school. Our teachers use the brightwheel parent communication app in class to share real-time updates of your child’s day. Additionally, we will soon be offering WatchMeGrow, a live steaming service through the cameras located in our classrooms.

At La Petite Academy, our passion is providing a supportive care environment that promotes learning opportunities and encourages your child’s developmental journey. Please schedule a visit today!

Teachers are very loving and nurturing. I feel that they have taken the time for my child to be comfortable and feel safe. The atmosphere has also promoted my sons learning.
Excellent. Teachers are friendly and my son also loves this school.
The teachers are so friendly to both children and parents.
The entire staff is kind and caring and their use of the Brightwheel app allows me to feel connected to my kiddo throughout the day. Our daughter is always happy to see them! I couldn’t be happier or more confident with our childcare choice!!
Great experience! My son has grown so much intellectually! He's learned manners, following instructions, socialization, and communication. You all do an amazing job! You really care about each kid and their family. I am so impressed with the teachers.
I love this daycare for my son. The staff is very warm and welcoming. I love the consistent routine they have for the kids. Communication is made easy through the brightwheel app. I love seeing the pictures they post.
Teachers and director have been great. Easy to communicate with.
We love our school! The staff, the curriculum, everything!
I have been so happy with this school and staff. They have met and exceeded every expectation I didn’t know I had for a daycare. They truly love and value my child and even as an infant help him to hit his developmental milestones. They’re so much more than a daycare, they’re an educational facility.
We love this facility and the staff! Jana, janelle and karoline are so welcoming and very helpful!!
