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. 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.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Teachers are amazing. Sweet. Caring. Love it. Love them all.
We have both of our children there and the experience has been amazing! My kids have learned so much and are excited to attend every morning!
Awesome place. Kids love all the teachers. Very professional. Thanks ladies.
La Petite - Clearwater is incredible. The individual attention my child receives is shaping him into a wonderful little boy, he is learning how to socialize, vocalize, and most importantly LEARN.
My child definitely shows more knowledge/skills after being at this school for just a short period of time. He is always singing new songs and telling me something new.
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!
