Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in South County, St. Louis, MO. My name is Brittni and I am the academy director. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration, a Child Development Associate credential and 14 years of experience as a teacher and manager.

I can confidently say our school offers the best infant care and private preschool in St. Louis. We are nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation and continue to meet their standards. Our teachers have a combined experience of more than 100 years.

Because your child's well-being is our top priority, our school has a variety of health and safety protocols in place. These include daily temperature and symptom checks for all students and staff upon arrival, limiting parents, visitors, and vendors to common areas only, and heightened cleaning and sanitizing procedures.

Our school uses the most current and innovative classroom technologies, including the WatchMeGrow live video streaming service for parent viewing. Our Brightwheel app sends updates, photos, and videos and has an interactive messaging feature, allowing you to communicate with your child's teacher throughout the day. We are also proud to offer our supplementary Spotlight on Spanish, Phonics, and KinderMusik programs!

I am confident our La Petite Academy in St. Louis, MO is the best educational daycare in the area. Schedule a tour today - we can't wait to meet you!
