Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Altamonte Springs, FL. My name is Bianca and I am the academy director. I have worked for Learning Care Group for approximately four years and have ten years of experience as a teacher and manager.
Safety is still our top priority! We are so fortunate to have been able to serve our community throughout this pandemic, and we hope to keep our school growing now that the world has begun to find normalcy again. Please know that our staff continues to clean and sanitize surfaces, materials, toys and touch points throughout the day with bleach solution. We are happy to welcome families back into our building to drop off and pick up their children, but we ask that you still continue practicing social distancing when possible.
Our school is accredited by the National Early Childhood Program and holds a certificate for the Gold Seal Quality Care Program.
We are fortunate to have a great staff dedicated to our children and families. All of our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state. They will maintain communication with you through our Family Communication app, and you can look in on your child's classroom through our free live-streaming video !
