Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy of Stanley! My name is Amanda and I have been the director here since October of 2018, but have been with La Petite since 2011.
Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool, and Pre-K programs, as well as Before- and After-School options.
In my experience, I have worked closely with our curriculum and have seen first hand the high-quality and well-rounded educational experiences we provide for young learners. Our amazing staff members take part in training opportunities to ensure they stay up-to-date on the latest news in early education.
We would love for you come take a look at our newly-remodeled school, which includes; wood floors, a new playground, new furniture, and new classroom toys and manipulatives! Schedule a tour today of La Petite Academy in Stanley, KS!
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
