Welcome to La Petite Academy educational preschool in Smyrna, TN. We are proud to serve all of Rutherford county. My name is Ashley and I am the academy director. I have more than 16 years of experience in child care and am currently working towards an associate's degree in early childhood education.
Our school offers several programs including Infant and Toddler care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and Before- and After-School care. Our building has several safety features, including a front-door keypad entry system.
We have a wonderful group of teachers here in Smyrna! My staff have a combined experience of over 203 years with two teachers serving our school for 23 years, and the remaining teachers serving our schools for 5-15 years each. All of our teachers are certified in CPR and first aid and attend ongoing training throughout the year.
We offer a wonderful curriculum based on each child's developmental needs. We have an open door policy with families and work together to do what's best for your child. Our center also offers quarterly parent teacher conferences, as well as a mobile app that sends parents updates on their child's day in real-time.
We also offer many different activities so our families can build a strong community within our school.
