Welcome to La Petite Bowie, MD. I’m Daphne Anderson, Director at La Petite Bowie. My Bachelor’s degree is in Education. I have over 40 years of experience in the Early Childhood.
Here at La Petite Bowie, we provide programs ranging from Infant care through School Ages up to 12 years old. We have a wonderful team of professionals with 50-plus years of experience combined.
We keep our families engaged with updates via brightwheel mobile app. Now we are introducing WatchMeGrow, our live stream cameras. The addition of live stream will allow families to see their children throughout the day in a safe and educational learning environment.
We are in full compliance with the CDC guidelines to keep your children safe in our care. All children and staff undergo temperature check every day before accessing our center. Wearing a mask is required upon entering the center. Surfaces, manipulative toys and games are cleaned and sanitize throughout the day and after use. Hand washing takes place throughout the day until to pick up.
To assist School-Age students with continued learning we are introducing “The Prep Lab” this fall, a program that will supplement the virtual learning for School-Age students.
If you are looking for a caring, education-driven childcare center, stop by La Petite Bowie today for a tour.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

In our School-Age classroom, your child will find an immersive educational environment that is the perfect setting for productive, engaging mornings and afternoons, as we help them to be thinkers, makers, and doers. Some enhancements in this classroom include:
