We love everyone here. They are great with our daughter. Good communication; we love the app and info that comes through. It's great when our one year old actually likes going to daycare
Love that my children are spending their early years here. La petite has played a vital role in the upbringing of my kids.
Both of my children have gone to La Petite since they were 12 weeks old. They are well taken care of, and I trust the staff whole-heartedly. My daughter is in the early preschool class and she learns so much and is so smart! My son is in the infant room and is loved on every day by many different staff members. They have played a huge role in the early years of my children, and I am thankful for them
every day.
