Discover Our Educators

our-teacher

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

March & April


Mr. Keith joined La Petite Academy of Columbia, Maryland, as Lead Teacher of the School-Age Classroom, one year ago. He has truly shined in the face of virtual learning challenges, staying very patient and positive. He makes one-on-one time a priority for his students who need extra support. His guidance has been vital to their ability to adapt. Mr. Keith likes to lead classroom debates that encourage each child to be confident in their opinions, while also listening to their friends’ opinions. He is highly respected and loves playing games, connecting with his students on the latest Nintendo Switch trends. We are lucky to have him on our team.

Our Curriculum

Science, technology, engineering, and math are the building blocks of our curriculum, because they’re fundamentally a part of the way young children interact with the world.
