4.86 out of 5 stars
It is a great school for my child because of the early education she is recieving and a great social enviorment for her to interact with other students and the teachers.
I walked in there on last week for a tour and I fell in love with the school. The teachers are great, the center was clean and the children seem happy. The director is very pleasant,nice and really knows each and every child needs. I will recommend everyone to go to lapetite.
I absolutely love this daycare! The director truly cares about the children and goes out of her way to make sure the feel comfortable . It's like my extended family. I truly love my child here. Thank you for all you do to make her feel so comfortable and love going to school every day!
The school does an excellent job with flexible scheduling (flex pass). My children are very happy to go to school, which to me gives the most valuable feedback.

We love La Petite! It is our second home. New director Neima is amazing. I believe she is the best we had. Has very friendly approach and great ideas about how to make curriculum more fun. Mr. Alvin by far the most wonderful teacher and cares so much for children. I can not thank you enough for everything you do for our little ones.

I absolutely love all the staff. They have provided my son with a safe, nurturing environment with healthy boundaries. When I drop him off in the morning, they are warm and inviting which leaves me with comfort. Also, the setting of healthy boundaries in my absence has helped my son to relax and pay attention - this in itself is priceless. LaPetite gets two thumbs up in my opinion. Tell them to keep
up the good work!
