Welcome to La Petite Academy of Tyrone, GA. My name is Dekesha and I am the center director. I have been in child care for more than 13 years and have a CDA in childcare.
Our goal is to meet each child's individual needs and adhere to the highest standards of safety. it is important that during the pandemic that we are adhering to the CDC guidelines and regulations. Currently during the pandemic we are doing temperature checks in the lobby upon drop off for children, staff and vendors as well as health checks during the day.
We teach at each child's developmental level for our Infant through Preschool children, as well as in our Private Pre-Kindergarten and Jr. Kindergarten programs! This fall we will be introducing a new program called the Prep Lab program. This program will allow children to do their virtual learning in the classroom with our teachers support and have weekly stem projects and activities.
With the safety of the children we offer the WatchMeGrow app. A live-streaming camera system where you are able to see to your child learn and grow with each classroom they transition too from your smart device.
Our teachers are in the process of being fully credentialed, with the minimum requirement being a Child Development Associate, and some hold associate degrees or higher in early childhood education. All of our staff is CPR and First Aid certified. We welcome you to be apart of our Lapetite Academy family in Tyrone.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
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

I have three beautiful children, ages 22, 14 and eight and I am from Arlington, TX. I love seeing the kids' smiles and their reactions when they accomplish something they are proud of. I have had the privilege of working for the company since 2010. My hobbies are traveling and seeing the world.
