Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite in Bowie, MD. My name is Daphne and I am the center director. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education and I have been working in early childhood for over 36 years.

We have an open door policy and a warm and welcoming center. Our center provides Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and Before- and After-School programs. We provide flexible scheduling to meet all of our families needs.

We have a wonderful and long term team here and some of our teachers have been here for over 20 years! We keep our families engaged with real time updates using our mobile app. Everything about your child's day will be sent to your desktop or mobile device.

Our main entry is equipped with a security system. Only those who are authorized are able to enter the building with a special code, and identification is always checked.

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
Overall, a solid daycare with good people.
The staff is so warm, friendly, and understanding. I love how everyone, including the directors, remember my child's name and personality traits. They have also been very helpful in supporting my son's physical and social development.
The school is a learning institute, highly accredited, and cares about the safety and education of the children.
My daughter loves going to school and knows all of the teachers by name and is excited to tell them what she is doing after school and on weekends. She has also made some great friends and has been exposed to a ton of different people and cultures. The education is great, seeing her start to learn from day 1 has been phenomenal.
The staff is very accommodating, genuine and caring. They will work with your child to get them through any situation.
Very positive experience. Provides a nurturing and caring atmosphere. Very pleased.
Overall great experience with school
i am very happy with la petite in bowie, md. my child is now 3, she has been there since one year old. it feels like a community among the parents and students. last year the parents came together to host a big halloween festival. my daughter shows advanced skills in numbers and letters well before kindergarten. Thanks La Petit!
We moved our child to La Petite about 3 months ago from a different daycare and are absolutely in love with it. His teachers are AMAZING. They are caring and patient and work with him on skills everyday. We are thrilled with Brightwheel and love getting updates throughout the day and being able to message his teachers. I cannot say enough good things about La Petite. The staff and director are incredible
people and I feel that they really know and understand my child. They do so many fun activities with the children everyday, and are above and beyond in every way. They are patient about some of the habits he has that might frustrate other caretakers (picky eating, trouble sharing, crying at drop off). I also love that sometimes the teachers speak Spanish to each other and the children in the classroom, I know that's great for his brain development. Eboni Robinson, his main teacher, is an absolutely rockstar. I can't emphasize how good she is with my son, and how much she goes above and beyond. He loves seeing her everyday. Della Olupona is another rockstar in his classroom. She knows so much about child development, and also always makes a point to ask me how my day was at pick up time. They're truly outstanding people and I feel very comfortable trusting them to care for my child everyday.

Positive. The directors and teachers appear to sincerely adore the children. There is a low turn over with teachers and children which speaks to the happiness of all involved in my opinion.
