Welcome to Our School

Welcome to the La Petite Academy educational daycare in Wichita, KS! Located conveniently at Central and Waco, we are close to Via Christi St. Francis. and Wesley hospitals, Friends and Newman Universities, the Delano district, and of course, downtown. We have incredible Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs at our school, and I would love to talk with you about it!

My name is Erin Powell and I am the Academy Director. I have an associate’s degree in early childhood education and I will be attending college in the spring to work towards obtaining a bachelor's degree in early childhood. I have more than 18 years of experience working with young children and families.

Part of what I love about my job is partnering with our families in the education of their children. Through our regular parent events, we have created a community within our school and have become a big extended family. We participate in the Kansas Quality Rating and Improvement System (KQRIS). This is a star-rating system that evaluates many different pieces of our program and holds us to a much higher standard than the Kansas Child Care Licensing and Registration Laws. I am proud to say that we are a 4-Star school!

Along with the STAR standards, we are taking extra safety protocols here at our school, like temperature checks of children and staff . We have also adopted masks as a part of our uniforms. We have a team of incredible teachers – together, they have more than 20 years of experience. We have a passion for what we do and it shows through our continuous efforts to grow as a family and facility!

We also offer flexible schedules to accommodate flexible school plans and new working parents needs. Our La Petite Academy in Wichita, KS is so more than a daycare! Come visit us and see what amazing opportunities our school has to offer!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
amazing my son shows me how happy he is going to school
The staff at La Petite are engaging and showed a true joy in their profession. We are excited to become a part of their program.
I can sit here and tell you how my interaction with the director and teachers have been nothing but great but what really matters most is that my daughter absolutely LOVES going. On the weekends she always asks me how many more naps until I get to go to my school? Before we came to La Petite, it was just the opposite, she never wanted to go to daycare and wanted to stay with me which made it so hard
to drop her off. At La Petite she is just so excited to see her teacher and friends that after a quick hug, she's off and running! That says a lot about how they must treat her during the day and her experience there.
