Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Jurupa Valley, CA! My name is Kellie and I am the director of this wonderful school. I have 20 years of experience as a teacher and manager. Drawing from by background, I can confidently say that La Petite Academy offers the best infant care, preschool and other early education programs.

The experienced staff here thoroughly enjoys working with our children on a daily basis and watching them grow and develop into lifetime learners. In addition to the college courses required, they bring years of experience and creativity to the classroom.

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 moviemaking, robots for coding and more! Plus, we offer a child-safe Wi-Fi network for homework time.

We value the importance of building relationships with our families and take the time to personally get to know everyone at our facility. We believe that communication is the key to all of our success and I have an open-door policy for any questions or concerns.

We'd love for you to join our school, so call today to schedule a tour of our newly remodeled La Petite Academy in Jurupa Valley, CA!
