Welcome to our accredited La Petite Academy in Springfield, MO! My name is Carrie Vore, the director, and I have been with our school since 2006. I have a BS in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood. I have so many amazing things to share about our school.
Developed by our team of education experts, our curriculum is individualized and STEM based so each child can be prepared for kindergarten. Teachers in each of our infant, toddler, preschool and pre-k classrooms have hundreds of activities from which to choose, each tied to a specific objective.
Our lead teachers have more than 100 years of combined experience and all teachers receive monthly training and are CPR and first aid certified. We offer several elective programs including Spanish, phonic, kindermusik and yoga. We strive to create a welcoming environment and have an open-door policy so parents can come in and talk with us at any time. At our school, we value the relationships we have with our families and work hard to involve them every day. We are excited to offer Brightwheel, which is a mobile app that allows you to get updates and photos on your child through out the day and coming this fall Watch Me Grow will allow you to live stream your child's classroom so you don't miss a thing.
Health and safety has always been our top priority but we have heightened them with teachers wearing face masks and daily health checks. We know the last few months have brought unexpected changes and we want to support you and your family with flexible scheduling or anything else to help. If you are looking for an engaging, education-driven daycare in Springfield, MO, then I invite you to stop by or call our La Petite Academy for a tour today!

I have been with La Petite Academy for over 10 years. After spending my first 10 years in the classroom, I was excited to move into the director position. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to help our staff, students and families grow and learn.
Education: Child Development Associate
Certifications: CPR/First Aid
Being with La Petite for over 20 years I have seen many families come and go. I love that some of my former students are returning with little ones of their own. It is such a joy to see the LPA tradition grow while families continue to make more memories.
