Welcome to Our School

At La Petite Academy in Shawnee, our Infant Care and Preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and child development. I am Celeste Cadle, the center director. I come to La Petite with a degree in early childhood education and over 20 years of experience in the field. I love watching the minds of children grow and blossom.

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.

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.

We strive to offer a loving and consistent environment for our students while placing an emphasis on academic excellence. 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!

We love the entire staff at La Petite! Feels like family.
Since the first tour at the center, we were welcomed with friendly smiles and a willingness from all staff to answer any questions I may have had. I feel comfortable and reassured of the care for my children, as often they attend, the teachers and staff try to always keep in contact with me regarding my children and their ability to grow and learn in such a healthy environment. Thank you La Petite.
Please never stop caring for our little ones, we appreciate all of you.

The teachers and staff have been great since day 1. They communicate with us every day and are always on top of updating the app with what are child is doing. We love it here!
I love this place! My youngest child has been going here since she was 5 months old, and every single teacher and staff member has been loving and amazing as she has grown! She is now 2 1/2, and she is happy, healthy, and incredibly intelligent and advanced for her age. I love these ladies and how well they have cared for my child while I am at work. I am so thankful to have found them. I highly recommend
LaPetite and don't want my child going anywhere else! I trust them with her implicitly.
