Welcome to La Petite Academy in St. Joseph, MO!

Welcome to our fantastic La Petite Academy educational daycare in St. Joseph, MO, which opened in 1990. My name is Georgia Burns, and in 1996, I started at La Petite to make a difference in the lives of the children in my community. In 2004, I received the pleasure of being named director. I have an associate's degree in early childhood education. I find that creating an environment where families feel safe bringing their children to learn to be very rewarding.

At La Petite Academy, our infant child care and preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and child development. Here at our school, we focus on developing the whole child. Each day, your child will be engaged in educational activities that take place in a secure, caring, and enriching environment. We treat each child and parent with understanding and respect, while being responsive to your individual needs and expectations.

We would love for you to be a part of this education process by attending our parent events! Our monthly events allow you to not only participate in your child's education, but also network with other families in your community.

Please come in or schedule a visit today so you can see firsthand why La Petite Academy is the premier educational child care center in St. Joseph, MO!
