Children work their bodies and minds daily going through our Minds in Motion maze.

Lafayette Academy currently serves over 140 families from all over Southern Indiana.  We provide preschool classes for children ages 3-5 and give our students the confidence to enter kindergarten ready to learn. Our classroom environment is one where children can freely explore learning centers, work with their teachers one-on-one and in small groups, experience outdoor playtime, and daily time in our Minds-in-Motion room.

"LAP is a loving and nurturing Christian preschool that gives children a wonderful start to their educational careers.  The school has an academic focus combined with a continuum of activities to foster social and emotional growth.  I am proud to say that both of my children attended the preschool!"

Michele Day

Former Principal and Director of Elementary Education for New Albany Floyd County Schools

"We have sent three children to LAP and each child has gained so much from the school. Our son wakes up every morning and asks "can I go to school today?" He cries on days that we tell him "no". They have learned so much and been so well prepared for kindergarten, but more importantly, they are so loved while they are there. The teachers care so much about the health and development of the children and they strike a perfect balance between learning and play and social interaction. My daughter regularly tells me, "kindergarten is Ok, but I'm jealous of Cash (our son) because he still gets to go to preschool."

Dr. Heather Lewis

"My family loves LAP. All three of my sons have gone there (one still does) and they have all had great experiences.  The teachers are well educated and use current teaching methods that help kids learn and have fun at the same time.  They have made the transition to kindergarten a breeze . Great staff + top notch educational program = smart, happy preschoolers!!"

We read Bible stories and pray with our students daily.


Our School is blessed to have a talented staff of all certified teachers with full time assistants in each classroom.
