At La Petite Academy, our Infant Care and Preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and child development. We strive to offer a loving and consistent environment for our students while placing an emphasis on academic excellence.
I am Celeste Cadle, the center director for La Petite Academy in Shawnee. I come to La Petite with a degree in early childhood education.
Our building features enclosed classrooms for an optimal learning environment and a large outside play area for the children to exercise and explore. We pride ourselves on being a home away from home.
We have new technology in our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms! Children have iPads with educational apps, as well as soft shapes and letters that interact with the touchscreens. Plus, our Preschool class has an Inspire Plus interactive table and our Pre-K class will feature a STEM Lab with hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts, and Math.
Our teachers have more than 100 years of combined experience! Each of our teachers is CPR and first aid certified to provide the safest environment for your child.
Please stop by or call today to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Shawnee, KS! We look forward to meeting you!
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
