Welcome to La Petite Academy in Columbia, SC!

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Columbia, SC! My name is Dianne Joel, and I am the director of this prosperous school. I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you how the staff, infant care and preschool programs at our center are sure to exceed your expectations for an early education provider.

I have 30 years of experience in early childhood and public school settings. I’ve spent 24 years at La Petite Academy and 19 as a director. I also have a bachelor’s degree in physical education. Because we are family oriented learning center, I love to interact with the families at our school and in the Columbia community. I enjoy watching the progress through each of our classrooms, from infant to the after-school program.

Our teachers here in Columbia pride themselves on the personal level of care and genuine concern for your child’s education. We have more than 75 years of teaching experience working for us. Three of our staff members have 20 or more years of experience and more than half of us have a degree certification in early childhood development. We have two staff members with a master’s degree, several others with an ECD 101 childcare certificate. Our daycare is the first in Columbia to complete the SCPITC (South Carolina Program for Infants/Toddlers Care). A staff member is always on duty that is CPR/first aid certified.
