Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare and preschool in Bonita, CA. My name is Kristen and I am the academy director. I have over 12 years of teaching experience with infants through school age. I have been with La Petite Academy for eight years and have a degree in Early Childhood Education.
We have a fabulous group of teachers, many of whom have been here more than 17 years. Our teachers are extensively trained and are mostly all bilingual. Many hold advanced degrees in early childhood education and child development, as well as certifications in CPR and First Aid.
At La Petite Academy, we are dedicated to fostering educational development, building self-esteem and sparking imagination in a safe and loving environment. We teach skills like teamwork, citizenship, and respect to help children develop in every way.
Now, more than ever, your focus is on ensuring your child’s learning stays on track. We’re here to help with The Prep Lab for school age children. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies. Your child can bring a device from home to complete distance learning assignments with our help. (If you do not have a device, we will do our best to support you.) We’re here to back you up (plus your child’s teachers) and strengthen your child’s ability to finish school work each day.
The Prep Lab teachers are here and ready to: Support your child’s distance learning requirements, hare challenging weekly STEM projects and provide character-developing activities from our My Best Self!™ curriculum
I encourage you to come visit our wonderful La Petite Academy in Bonita, CA. I look forward to meeting your family!
