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.
We pride ourselves in having a safe building. Our doors are equipped with a security system and only those who are authorized are able to enter the building with a special code. Also, with our Family Communication App, you can receive real time photos and updates about your child throughout the day! We also offer free Live-Streaming Video access for our families.
Staying healthy at school is our number one priority. Following CDC guidance, we're taking extreme care to maintain a safe, healthy school environment. We do temperature and wellness checks, all staff wear masks and anyone entering the building has to wear a mask, keep limited access to classrooms, and continue our enhanced cleanliness and hygiene practices.
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 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!
