Here's what people have to say

4.71 out of 5 stars
The teachers, especially Ms Angie have been a bright spot in our experience with La Petite.
We love it! Teachers are great, caring and genuine. I feel my child is safe and well taken care of. As a working parent it is a relief to feel comfortable when you leave your children each day. I have no worries when I leave my child and know during his day he will not only be taken care of but his development enriched.
School has great curriculum and great teachers.
We adore LaPetite. We've been there since my oldest was a newborn and now, my second is attending as well. We've made friends for ourselves and our children that have lasted through moves and school changes. The teachers here are the best. We could not be happier with them.
We have had an amazing experience so far. Our daughter jumped right in and loves going to preschool. She used to cry everyday at drop off at her old school. She runs off to play here. If she is sad we are leaving, her teachers do a great job helping her transition. She will sometimes wave out the window to us and she loves it! She has learned so much! Thank you!
We love that it feels like one big family at the center. When we pick up other teachers in the hall not assigned to my sons classroom are telling him goodbye using his name. I️ think it is great that all of the teachers know all of the kids names!
Teachers are very caring and respectful of children and parents. I feel comfortable leaving my child in their care.

I have been working with children since 2005. My favorite part about working in early childhood is watching children try to understand, and then seeing that little "twinkle" in their eyes when it clicks and how proud they are of themselves
