Welcome to Our School

Hi, my name is Lynnel Hogencamp, and I am the director of La Petite Academy in Shelby, NC. In 2000 I started my career in the early childhood field. I started as a teacher the infant room where I worked for 10 years before teaching every age group, along with being an assistant and center director. In August of 2020 I was blessed with becoming the director here at La Petite.

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. We are also certified in CPR, First Aid, SIDS 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. Along with great parent/teacher communication we also stay in contact through our brightwheel communication app.

**NEW** The center has gone LIVE with a live streaming program called Watch Me Grow which was developed for parents to view their children in there classroom.

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 however we are still offering tours ( meeting with you outside of the building) and now virtually!

Call us today to set up an in person or virtual tour- we can't wait to meet you!

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.
