Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy! My name is Ashley Hetherington and I am the Academy Director. I have been part of the La Petite family for over five years and I am proud of the recognition received for my work with children in our community and their success in school after leaving our care.

Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool, and other early education programs. To keep our students safe, all safety and security procedures are strictly enforced by our staff.

Our experienced staff thoroughly enjoys working with our children on a daily basis and watching them grow and develop into lifetime learners.

We create a warm and welcoming environment and encourage our parents to utilize our open-door policy. We also utilize the brightwheel mobile app to communicate with parents about their child's day.

Please call us today to schedule a tour! We would love for you to visit our wonderful La Petite Academy learning center!
