A Leader in Educational Child Care

La Petite Academy was established in 1968, with the purchase of seven university-sponsored schools. A pioneer in education-based care, La Petite Academy created the Journey™ curriculum, which sets the standard for early childhood education.

As we have grown, we’ve developed significant resources, such as our own Education Department to set programs and curriculums, as well as top training and professional development for our teachers.

La Petite Academy offers a range of educational and care programs for children of all ages — from infants to school-age children who come to the Academy before and after school. By focusing on nurturing seven skill areas — an approach we call our Whole Child Education — we help children develop the critical-thinking skills and intellectual curiosity that fuel success in his or her kindergarten classroom and beyond.

As part of one of the nation’s largest educational child care companies, La Petite Academy Inc. operates nearly 500 child care schools across the country. Headquartered in Novi, Michigan, each of our schools is licensed by the state where it operates. From North Carolina to California, we adhere to the highest standards of safety, security, cleanliness, teaching and loving care.

In 2007, we became part of the Learning Care Group family. Learning Care Group is one of the largest providers of early childhood care and educational services in the United States.

La Petite Academy is an equal opportunity provider.
