Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Shelby, NC.

Hi, my name is Deborah Blanton, and I am the director of La Petite Academy in Shelby, NC. I have been here since 1984, first as an infant teacher, then one year later I became the assistant director. I held that position for 35 years. In November of 2019 I took over the director position.

We are very proud of our school. We have several long term teachers. Our teachers have completed early childhood education classes and many have degrees in early childhood. They also have certifications in CPR, first aid, and playground safety.

My staff and I enjoy building relationships with every family. We have an open-door policy and invite you to participate in our learning experiences. Our doors are equipped with a security system and only those who are authorized may enter the building with a special code. We also have cameras that monitor our classrooms and school grounds, which can be seen in the lobby.

Each day, your child will be engaged in educational activities that take place in a loving, caring environment. Our goal is to offer early learning experiences that will enrich your child's development, promote a positive self-image, and ensure a lifelong love of learning.

Due to Covid-19, we also implement our safety and health checks, which includes temperature checks, all staff wear masks, extra hand washing, and great sanitizing incorporated by all staff members. At this moment we do not allow visitors in our school. Our plan for the fall is to offer flexible schedules to accommodate flexible school plans and utilize Prep Lab to support e-learning for School-Age.

Coming soon this fall WatchMeGrow live streaming available for parents to see their children in live view in their classroom.

4.86 out of 5 stars
It has been a very welcoming and educational experience.
This is a great program with a lot of teachers who really care about your children.
Amazing school! The teachers are wonderful and truly care about my child’s wellbeing.
La Petite Academy is exactly the school we hoped to find for our daughter. The staff are professional and great with the kids. The curriculum is structured in a way that is fun and educational. Safety was one of our concerns, but this facility completely wiped those concerns out. We wouldn't send our daughter anywhere else!
The school and safe are great.
I think La Petite Academy is great! My daughter loves to go to school, she is participating in class and making friends. Her dad and I are pleased with her progress so far. We appreciate her teachers taking the time to talk to us about her day and any issues they are having.
Overall the school is great. Love how the teachers in her class truly love her and their care for her is genuine. The teachers go out of their way to do different activities to assist with development and growth. Have recommended the infant class to multiple people who were looking for a daycare. My daughter and I will miss her teachers most when she moves to a different school.
