Welcome to Our School

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Columbia, MD! My name is Martina and I am the director of this amazing school. I have an associate's degree in early childhood education and over 10 years of experience in the field.

Whether it's providing loving care for infants or participating in activities in our Preschool programs, I love to see the children's sense of accomplishment as they grow and mature into lifelong learners.

Our school is both safe and fun thanks in large part to our qualified teachers here in Columbia. The capable staff here at La Petite has taken classes in first aid and child development, with many possessing associate's and bachelor's degrees. We are proud to say we are a NECPA Accredited School!

We work together to ensure the care provided for children and parents is the same level of care we would want for ourselves and our families. We encourage parent involvement in activities and value the one-on-one interactions we have every day.

Schedule a tour of our fantastic La Petite Academy in Columbia, MD today! We look forward to meeting your family!

The school has very friendly teachers who care about the children! When we walk in we get so many hellos and people ask how we are. We feel our daughter is in a very safe and nurturing environment.
