Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Columbia, MD! My name is Joanne and I am the Academy Director. I have my bachelor’s degree in elementary education, and I love seeing the children learn and discover the world around them.

We proudly service families in Baltimore, D.C., and many other surrounding cities. We provide School-Age transportation to and from local elementary schools (Waterloo, Bellow Springs, Thunder Hill, and Phelps Luck) and offer an innovative before-and-after-care program. We also offer GrowFit, a nutrition program designed to promote healthy eating habits and healthy minds from a young age.

We love seeing our children progress through our school readiness pathway – starting as Infants and graduating from our Pre-K/Junior K program! It is our goal to feed inquisitive minds and create lifelong learners!

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Great experience! My daughter has been attending this school for about 6 months now, and we absolutely love it. All the teachers are caring and friendly, she is happy and she learns a lot every day. We also get a lot of pictures and updates throughout the day via our phone app which is really nice and helpful.
I love La Petite. Especially the location in Columbia because they are always accommodating and nice. My son always has a great time there.
