Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Topeka, KS. My name is Stevi and I am the academy director. I started in the field of early childhood education in 2008 and hold an Associate of Arts Degree in psychology with a minor in child development from the University of Phoenix.

At La Petite Academy, our Infant Care and Preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. We strive to offer a loving and consistent environment for our students, who range in age from six weeks to six years, while placing an emphasis on academic excellence.

We are passionate about our school and treat everyone as an extension of our own families. My staff and I create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy. We plan monthly events for all families to participate in and we work hard to ensure our families get to know each other and develop strong relationships.

Our teachers have more than 100 years of combined experience! Each teacher is CPR and First Aid certified to provide the safest environment for your child.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

Please call today to set up a tour of our wonderful La Petite Academy in Topeka, KS, currently serving Shawnee County. We look forward to meeting your family!

Here's what people have to say

4.7 out of 5 stars
I absolutely love this school and the teachers. They are very attentive and very good at communication and keeping me informed.
Verified Shopper
Very happy with the teachers, directors, and communication. He loves attending and we trust the staff very much. Cost is extremely high and not competitive with other childcare. If we ever were to leave, this would be the reason.
Verified Shopper
Great director and lead staff
Verified Shopper
I love the brightwheel app. The respose I get from the teachers is almost immediate. I also recieve notifications and reminders for my children. The school has worked with our schedules and it has been easy to transition my children from 1/2 days to full days and to all week.
Verified Shopper
The teachers are very caring. Genuinely care about the children. And my grandkids love all of them!
Verified Shopper
My children didn't attend childcare until they were 19 months old. The staff and teachers were wonderful at helping my children overcome separation anxiety. The brightwheel application on my phone helped to aliievate my anxiety by allowing my to check on their progress throughout the day and communicate with the school. My children get excited to go to school each day and see their teacher.
Verified Shopper
Wonderful environment and awesome staff. My daughter loves to go school. Would like to thanks all the staff for their support.
Verified Shopper
I have nothing but positive comments based on our experience. I can’t express the peace of mind I have knowing I am leaving my children in the hands of teachers who care about them. My son has grown socially and his language has blossomed. My daughter is still an infant and the teachers made my transition back to work so much easier than it could have been.
Verified Shopper
Provides safe and clean environment for child care and learning.
Verified Shopper
The staff are professional and nurturing. All the teachers and staff interact with my children and know their progress. My children have never been in childcare before the age of 1 1/2, so all the teachers worked with them to feel safe and comforted. Now they walk into school excited and without any fears.

I've been with La Petite since 2012 and I absolutely LOVE children! I love to watch them learn and grow. My day is complete when I have a little person telling me they love me! I am married and have two beautiful children, and a very special dog that is like my third child!

I'm originally from Waco, Texas (and a southern girl at heart) but I've lived here for a little over 10 years now. I have been with La Petite for six years and I have immensely enjoyed working with our young ones and seeing their families! I started as a floating assistant and slowly worked my way through every room and age group. I like watching the children explore and learn as they grow! I know they'll go on to do amazing things! In my spare time I enjoy being with friends and family.
