Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational child care center located on Leesville Rd. In Raleigh, NC. My name is Stephanie and I am the academy director. I have more than 10 years experience in early childhood education.

Our educational and developmentally appropriate programs include Infant and Toddler Care, Preschool, and Pre-Kindergarten. Classrooms are separated by age to specifically meet your child's developmental needs.

The amazing teachers at our school are equipped to care for your child while fostering unique learning opportunities to help them reach their next developmental goals.

Parents enjoy consistent and real-time communication with our teachers through our brightwheel mobile app! This tool allows us to keep you consistently informed about the happenings in your child's day. WatchMeGrow is also coming soon where parents will have access to live-streaming cameras and be able to look inside their child's classroom.

We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment for children, families, and staff. We have enhanced our already rigorous health protocols, such as protective masks, taking temperatures, limited classroom access, wellness checks, safe (and still healthy) dining, and enhanced health practices.

At La Petite Academy in Raleigh, NC, we take pride in ensuring your child is thriving in an environment filled with love and fun! Schedule a tour today!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
You guys are the best. The teachers are so wonderful especially daijia
We cannot say enough about how much we love it there!
We love the friendly atmosphere and nurturing care our baby receives. The infant teachers are so sweet and loving! We love the open communication we have with both administration and teachers. We are so happy to be part of the La Petite Family!
This school has been wonderful. Administration and teachers alike are kind and cordial. They are professional but also warm and personable with the children. I appreciate how my kids get offered healthy food and plenty of chance to move.
We've had nothing but great experiences so far with La Petite!
Great, staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. My child loves her teachers and classmates and is excited to see them each morning. She is learning so much as well. The director and assistant director are very hands on and approachable. We love our school and are happy we have such a welcoming and safe place for our child to go each day.
Kind and welcoming. Great teachers.
this has taught my kids so much . I see the change from when they started til now and I can't be more proud. This is great school and the teachers are very attentive.
Teachers are amazing! My children are always excited to get to school!!
Not only has it been a lovely experince for my son, but for me as well. I was really nervous about my son being in the care of individuals I did not know, but over time it's as if they are his family away from home. He gets worried when his classmates or staff members are out for a day by asking so many questions about their return. I don't regret the decision to keep him enrolled, just sad that his
time there may come to an end once he starts Kindergarden.
