Our state-of-the-art center is located in the Hedingham subdivision between the Beltline and Knightdale, serving the Eastern Wake County communities. My name is Michelle and I am the Director. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in early childhood education and look forward to completing my master's degree. I have 25 years of experience as a teacher, trainer, mentor and director.
Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool and other early education programs. I enjoy interacting with families here in Raleigh and seeing the children develop into lifelong learners.
We are excited to offer new technology in our School-Age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding, and a new gaming system.
Our outstanding staff has more than 250 years of combined experience at this center! All teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by local state agencies.
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. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
I invite you to call or stop by for a tour of our La Petite Academy child care center today!

I have a tremendous love of children and I place a high standard on learning. I believe children are an inspiration; each one different in their own way with so much to teach us. Early childhood is when children are developing the most and when learning is the greatest. This is where the importance should be placed as these early experiences with learning can really influence how a child looks at schooling in the future.
