Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy of Stanley! My name is Amanda Lewey and I have been the director here since October of 2018, but have been with La Petite since 2011. I have a Bachelor's of Arts in Elementary Education with a Master's in K-12 Reading.
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 will update you about your child's day on our mobile app with photos and more plus coming this fall, we will be introducing WatchMeGrow. This program will allow you to live stream your child's classroom so you don't miss a thing.
Additionally, our main focus remains keeping children in our schools safe and healthy – like requiring face masks for our staff and conducting daily health checks for children and teachers at the start of each day and throughout the day. We understand that you may have different needs now for your school-age child to learn remotely or may need a flexible schedule to match yours - we are here for you! So please schedule a tour today of La Petite Academy in Stanley, KS!
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
