Welcome to La Petite Academy in Bradenton, FL! My name is Helen and I am the academy director. I have worked in child care for 12 years!
We offer Infant Care, Preschool and School-Age Programs for children six weeks to 12 years old. All of our staff are required to have current First Aid and CPR training, DCF 40-hour Child Care Training/Facility Training Courses, as well as training offered directly through La Petite Academy. All teachers also complete monthly training sessions and participate in Professional Development Days throughout the year.
During the school year, we provide drop-off and pick-up services at Tara, Braden River, Imagine, and Freedom elementary schools. In the summer we offer a camp full of programs to keep children engaged!
At our school, we strive to be like family. We have an open door policy for enrolled families and encourage them to be active in our center. We truly enjoy every day at our La Petite Academy in Bradenton, FL and invite you to come in and see what we are all about! Schedule your tour today!
