Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Clearwater, FL! My name is Danna Bernardi and I am the director. I have a Child Center Management credential as well as 32 years of experience as a teacher and manager. Based on my background, I am confident in saying that our school's infant care, preschool and other age-specific programs are the best in our area.

We are accredited by NECPA which means that the standards we follow exceed the State of Florida's Licensing Standards.

I run this learning-based child care center here in Clearwater like everyone involved is an extension of my own family - the children, parents, and teachers. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan a lot of events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships, as well.

Our core staff and their years of service to the children and families in our community are a reflection of the love and commitment they have to making our world a better place. Teachers participate in training throughout the year to stay current in the field of early childhood education.

Here's what people have to say

4.9 out of 5 stars
Absolutely amazing! Always extremely happy and my son has amazing teachers!
Awesome - kids are well behaved, teachers are very responsive, clean, excellent staff and extremely knowledgeable director.
Friendly and attentive to our son
I’ve had a great experience so far thanks to the wonderful staff.
We transferred from another child care system, and definitely have seen a positive improvement in our 2 year old. The structured discipline and curriculum have him behaving better at home, and we’re always impressed by what he has retained from the things he’s learning. We also love the ability to keep track of what’s going on, message the teachers, and view pictures from the day through the app!
I have mostly had wonderful experiences. I have not been a fan of two teachers, Tia and Danielle but the others are great. I love Ms. G, Lexie, Katie and Dawn. Angela is awesome too.
My granddaughter loves the staff. Always friendly and professional. Helpful with any questions I've had. Will miss them as she graduates to kindergarten. We love them.
We love all how sweet the teachers are. They gain our trust really quick because of how open communication is!
They have been very supportive and extremely accommodating to our family. I feel my boys are in a safe and supportive environment.
Everyone at the school is amazing, from the Director down to teachers who aren't even teaching my children. We love them all and feel at home at La Petite Academy - Clearwater.
