As one of the nation's largest educational daycare companies, La Petite Academy Inc. operates over 500 schools across the country. We offer 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.
Few organizations offer the same perspective and insight that we've achieved. Only through years of commitment has La Petite Academy become recognized for its innovation, leadership and reputation for excellence in early education. Each Academy operates the way any good neighborhood business does - we know our community and we understand how best to serve the parents and children who live there.
My daughter first started La Petite Academy at 15 months old at the Emory Road location. The staff and the curriculum were excellent. Since, then all three of my children have continue to excel and thrive at different locations in Knoxville. Currently, my children attend the Farragut location where the teachers are the fabulous. I am so in love with La Petite's curriculum and staff, that I also left my job (several months after enrolling my first child) to be part of a team that truly cares about meeting the needs of each child and family. I have nothing but love for La Petite!
DO NOT ENROLL HERE.
The facility made a lot of promises on what they could provide and did not come through. Daily notes on my children's progress were never given as promised. My children came home multiple times with unknown bites, rashes and bruises which were not documented, clothes and sheets were lost on so many occasions. When visiting, I found the director not knowing what my children's names were after 6 months of enrollment. My speech delayed child was very much the victim of teacher neglect.
The director of the facility has no intention of conversing about the education of your child or facilitating their needs. Unfortunately with bad management, even if there are good teachers this facility is not in any way recommended.
The end result of my experience was that La Petite Academy primary goal is not the education of the students. I recommend not being fooled by the facility with the packaged sales pitch, brochures and education materials. They have no meaning unless the facility has the staff to fulfill their promises.
