Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Waunakee, WI! We serve the communities of Waunakee, Westport and Dane. My name is Jen and I am the director. I have 16 years of experience as an educator and 13 years in management.

At La Petite, our Infant Child Care and Preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. Our teachers have a combined tenure of more than 150 years! Majority of our teachers have associates or bachelor's degrees in education. They further their knowledge of the field by attending continuing education classes each year.

Parents can get peace of mind every day with real-time updates on their children sent directly to their computer or mobile device! It is a great way to stay connected while juggling a busy schedule!

I have an open-door policy and encourage parents to speak with me at any time. We plan monthly events that create strong relationships between our staff and families. Because safety is a top priority, our school is equipped with locked entrances and only parents and staff have access to the building during operating hours.

Every child deserves a great start to his or her education, and La Petite Academy in Waunakee, WI has what your family is looking for. Call us today to schedule a tour - we'd love to have you join us!
