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.

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

4.75 out of 5 stars
Great director and lead staff
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.
The teachers are very caring. Genuinely care about the children. And my grandkids love all of them!
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.
Wonderful environment and awesome staff. My daughter loves to go school. Would like to thanks all the staff for their support.
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.
Provides safe and clean environment for child care and learning.
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.
