Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Bakersfield, CA. My name is Juliet and I am the academy director. I have been in the child development field for over 23 years and I love helping children grow and learn.

At La Petite Academy, we focus on the development of the whole child in our Infant and Toddler Care, Preschool, Before- and After-School care and other early education programs.

The staff at La Petite are dedicated to providing the best learning experiences for each child. Every teacher is fully qualified as well as CPR and First Aid certified. Together, we have more than 170 years of teaching experience.

We create a warm, welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy. We plan events for our families and provide opportunities for them to meet one another. Our school is licensed by the state of California and adheres to the highest standards of safety, education, care, and cleanliness.

We would love for you and your child to join our La Petite Academy family. Schedule a tour and see why we're the best provider of education and care in Bakersfield, CA!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Everyone is always happy and smiling.
It has been a very pleasant experience.
The staff is amazing and they all seemed to genuinely care about all the children. They are helpful and very welcoming to parents as well
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.
I love this daycare center.
I love LaPetite and so do my kids. All the staff are so friendly and they really show their care for all the kids.
I love having my child attend la petite
