Welcome to La Petite Academy educational child care center in Winston-Salem, NC! My name is Donnishia Casterlow and I am the center director. I am working to complete my bachelor's degree in early childhood and have over 10 years of teaching experience in an early childhood setting.
Here at La Petite Academy, we offer safe, quality child care services for children age six weeks to 12 years old. Our programs include Infant/Toddler care, Twos, Preschool, Pre-K, School-Age before/after school and summer programs.
In School-Age, we offer The Prep Lab to support e-learning. We are taking extra measures to ensure that the health and safety of all staff and children. Temperatures are checked at the front door for all staff and children, hands are sanitized and washed upon entry, and all staff conduct COVID screenings throughout the day. At this time, we only allow staff inside the building to further prevent the spread of germs.
We also conduct Parent-Teacher Conferences twice each year to share your child's learning, growth and success! We value parent input into your child's learning and education with us. We are also excited to offer Live Streaming Video where families can log into a secure website to see their children learning and playing throughout the day.

Many of our teachers hold degrees in the early childhood field and attend school to continue their education. Please stop by to tour our school at any time and see the amazing care we have to offer you as part of our La Petite Academy family!
