Welcome to the Merchant Walk La Petite Academy!

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Niceville, FL! My name is Kate and I am the Director. I have an associate’s degree with an emphasis in early childhood education. I have been in child care for over seven years and in child care management for six of those years.

Our school—including daycare for infants, preschool programs and more—is nationally accredited by NECPA (National Early Childhood Program Accreditation). We received the award in January 2012 and we continue to meet the needs of accreditation standards. The standards that we follow are higher than the State of Florida's Child Daycare Licensing Standards.

I run this school here in Niceville like everyone involved is an extension of my own family – the children, parents, and teachers. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan a lot of events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships as well.

I find it rewarding when I overhear a child telling their parent about the great day that they had and how much fun they had with their teachers. We are fortunate to have long term staff that is dedicated to our children and families. More than half of our teachers have more than five years of teaching experience. All of our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state.

We value the relationships we have with our families and work hard to involve them. We offer a number of opportunities for our families to volunteer in the classroom and on field trips as well as monthly events, including Parents’ Night Out and other family outings.

We would be more than happy to show you our facility, and answer all questions you have. Schedule a tour of our fantastic child care in Niceville, FL today!
