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 experience in the field. I love watching the minds of children grow and blossom
We strive to offer a loving and consistent environment for our students while placing an emphasis on academic excellence. With the recent changes in school schedules and the current pandemic, we have implemented a Prep Lab where school-age students study math and reading daily.
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. The health and safety of our students is our top priority. Since March, we have implemented health checks at the door, which include temperature checks for all students and staff. Staff is also required to wear a mask and we have increased our daily cleaning. We offer full-time or part-time flexible schedules a well during this time.
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 making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
