Welcome to Our School

Welcome! My name is Alisha James and I am the director of La Petite Academy of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Our school offers infant care beginning at six weeks of age, as well as a full or part time preschool program focusing on kindergarten readiness.

Our committed team of educators fosters children's growth, development, and a lifelong love of learning! Teachers also participate in yearly training to stay up-to-date on best practices and child development.

We are committed to continuing to make the health and safety of the children our top priority. We closely follow guidance from the CDC as well as local and state authorities to provide the safest and cleanest environment possible. We strive to ensure that we are operating in the safest possible fashion all while promoting a fun environment where children are able to learn and grow.

Parents can stay connected all day through our family communication app, which sends real-time updates about your child's day.

I encourage you to schedule a tour today! We want to help you find the best possible fit for you and your family in regards to your child's education and care! I look forward to hearing from you!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
I love it!! Would not take my children anywhere else but here!!
My Overall experience at this location has been wonderful. Thanks for all the hard work and attentiveness ladies.
My child really enjoy La Petite
I am in love with everything about this child care! My daughter started at the age of 2 and is now 3.Her knowledge has expanded beyond anything I could have done on my own. She loves going to class and that is extremely important. There is a warm family feeling among the staff and its poured out onto the kids and parents. I feel secure in knowing my daughter is with a staff that demonstrates genuine
concern for her well being. She is not a pay check to this school and that alone is why I will enroll my future kids and recommend this academy!
