Welcome to Our School

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy in Waukesha, WI. My name is Julie and I am the director. I have a bachelor's degree in early childhood education as well as 30 years of experience as a teacher and manager. Drawing from this experience and education, I can confidently say La Petite Academy offers the best infant daycare and private preschool in the area.

We have an outstanding team dedicated to our children and families. Together, we have over 150 years of teaching experience. All of our staff is trained in CPR and first aid, Shaken Baby and SIDS. Our teachers receive monthly training as well as yearly training required by the state.

We offer a high-quality program that focuses on hands-on activities and fosters independence. Our center is also one of the community sites for the School District of Waukesha 4K Program.

We encourage our families to become involved by offering monthly events which allow parents to create relationships with one another as well as teachers.

Here's what people have to say

4.83 out of 5 stars
Absolutely amazing. Ms. Lisa is a phenomenal teacher and caring person. She is always the first one at daycare and our child is too. She is always so happy to see our child and is genuine at all times with him. She cares for the children so very much as do all the teachers in the school. When we pick up our child, the teachers in the infant room always tell us how his day was. Smile and greet
us and again, show genuine care and love for our child. The director Julie is always supportive of the teachers which is shown daily though interactions, smiles and joy throughout the school.

We have always been very pleased with this school and the teachers. So thankful for Mrs. Julie, she runs an amazing center.
Friendly and wonderful staff, clean, safe, and organized classrooms, variety of activities to keep the kids engaged! They do a great job for our family!
La petite is very responsive to all my questions and concerns. They help me get the best care for my children for the summer. The location is great, the staff is great, and the kids don't usually even want to go home when I get there to pick them up.
Thank you, La Petite, for everything you have done for our son! The director and teachers partnered with me from the start, helping me overcome first-time-mom nerves. Now I'm completely confident knowing his teachers love and care for him.
They are very friendly, my 4 kids like going there and they are always on time for pick up and drop off at school
