We've bought a new paddling pool for the children to cool off in!

If you would like your child to have a paddle, please bring a swimming costume or trunks, a towel and swim nappies (if needed) in a labelled bag.

Due to hygiene reasons, the children will not be able to access the paddling pool if they don't have proper swimwear. 🏊

Welcome to La Petite Academy - an 'outstanding nursery' as judged by Ofsted!

La Petite Academy is a friendly, unique nursery which has been established since October 1995. It is run by the hands on Managing Director, Helen Poyser who oversees the two managers.

Based in a large one-story building, situated in a quiet residential suburb of Littleover, the nursery is registered to care for 78 children in total, to ensure a high quality of childcare is maintained we restrict our daily numbers to 66, children are aged from 3 months to 5 years, together with a Breakfast and Afterschool club for children up to the age of 11 years.

The nursery is conveniently situated away from the main road, in a small crescent opposite the green, and has parking spaces directly in front of the building. La Petite Academy are renowned for a high quality service and remain very successful due to word of mouth and personal recommendations from parents; we have never advertised since opening.
