Discover Our Educators


At La Petite Academy, we’re proud to support our educators, so they can be effective in sharing our research-based curriculum and inspiring the development of children in all our programs. That’s why we work tirelessly to help them develop their skills and further their careers, so they can become the best educators they can—and your child gets the best experience possible.

La Petite Academy’s Learning Management System: Our professional development tool provides current training on child development and classroom best practices.

Child Development Associate Credential (CDA): We’ve partnered with the Council for Professional Recognition to provide a CDA Preparation Program. Our online courses enable teachers to pursue a nationally recognized CDA credential.

Master Teacher Program: Once they’ve earned their CDA, teachers can enroll in our Master Teacher Program, to develop even further. They’ll discover advanced courses in child development, assessment, and curriculum implementation. Once the program is completed, our Master Teachers become mentors to our new teachers.

School Education Manager Program: This unique training program produces curriculum experts. School Education Managers (SEMs) enjoy ongoing professional development and learn about classroom observation and evaluation. They coach and mentor other teachers to ensure a quality educational experience across all our programs.

Teacher Feature

Kind, patient, and wonderful with the children, Miss Luda is such an outstanding teacher that many of our families often return to visit—even after their kids have aged out of our school! Parents and students adore her just as much as we do! Miss Luda is the Lead Teacher of the Twos Classroom at La Petite Academy of Orange Park in northern Florida. After 19 years with our school, her classroom management skills are truly impressive. She consistently goes above and beyond with parent communication by sending dozens of photos, notes, and updates throughout the day to share each exciting milestone and learning experience. As for her own schooling, Miss Luda has a bachelor’s degree in Music and her Child Development Associate® Credential. We are so happy she’s spent nearly two decades sharing her passion for early education with our La Petite community.
