Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Raleigh, NC! My name is Latesha Levins and I am the school director. I have over 20 years of experience in early childhood education and hold a master’s degree in education (early childhood).
Our school has state-of-the-art technology, classrooms and playgrounds. We offer Infant Care, and a STEM-based curriculum for Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and other age-specific programs.
Our staff has more than 90 years of combined experience and they each have their North Carolina Credentials, are certified in CPR/First Aid and are working towards various degrees in early education. Infant teachers and management also have completed an ITS-SIDS training class and they renew every three years. Throughout the year, our staff participates in professional training conferences.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment. Our doors are equipped with a security system and only those who are authorized are able to enter the building with a special code.
We are located between the Six Forks North subdivision and 540. We serve the needs of parents in the North Raleigh area, near Millbrook and Neuse. Please schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy educational daycare today to learn more!
