Welcome to La Petite Academy in Springfield, MO! We have so many amazing things to offer here at La Petite.

Developed by our team of education experts, our curriculum is based on age-appropriate learning objectives. 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 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.

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
Absolutely love this school. Walking into the school you are greeted with a warm welcome. I would recommend this school/daycare to anyone!
We love this school. They are considerate, caring, and truly understand how to communicate with my child and help him with daily activities. He was very nervous at first due to more structure but now he asks to go to school every morning and always so excited when we walk in, he runs to his class.
It's been wonderful from the start. It's comforting to know my little one is cared for by such a wonderful group in a safe and encouraging environment.
Our child loves the day care staff. He's always in a good mood when I pick him up. The staff is kind and helpful. We are very pleased with our experience.
This school has been around since I was a baby. My siblings were enrolled when they were babies, and we all graduated from here. I am impressed that the values have not changed. Curriculum is extremely important so that my child knows what the teachers are talking about it Kindergarten. La Petite has held that standard very high.
The teachers are loving, caring, understanding, and personable. My daughter loves all of her teachers! The building is clean, and I feel at ease with dropping her off every day.
Very happy with this location for our infant. Staff is amazing and so helpful and encouraging to us as first time parents. Feel very happy with care if my child.
The staff at La Petite (Springfield, MO) has become like family to us.
Both of our children have attended La Petite. As a result, we have had a child enrolled for each of the last 5-6 years. Our children always end the day with a smile on their face and stories to tell about their days. It is a comforting feeling to know your child is learning and genuinely cared for by the staff (new and old) that have worked at the school over the duration of our attendance. Very pleased
with the strides that the school continues to make to be a premiere learning and daycare institution.
