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.
