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 local elementary schools 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.
