Welcome to La Petite Academy in Sarasota, FL!

Thank you for visiting our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Sarasota, FL. This school opened in February of 1992 and continues to be a leader in infant care, preschool and other age-specific programs in this area.

I am Ruthi Wiedenhoft and have been the director here since 2000. I have been with La Petite since 1991 and have my FCCPC as well as my Director Credential endorsed for VPK.

Our children and families here in Sarasota are our family! Communication is of the utmost importance to us and we want all our families to know that the development and safety of their child is our key focus. Our teachers are the heart and soul of our school and many have been with us for an average of 9 years or longer! All of our staff is certified in CPR/first aid. We currently have 12 teachers with their FCCPC's, two attending school to receive FCCPC, and one teacher attending school to receive her BA in education.

We all do monthly training and also participate in a Professional Development Day, annually. Continuing education and knowledge of best practices is key to our teachers' continued success as being a key role model for children!

We invite you to tour our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Sarasota, FL. Bring your child and get involved in an activity, and see why we continue to be a leader in early childhood education!
