I am completely satisfied with the care and education my child receives at your school. We were at another daycare briefly (due to convenience of location) and ran back to La Petite. I truly feel as though each employee cares about all the children and are invested in their education and well-being. I am able to drop my daughter off and know that she is being taken care.
