Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Columbia, MD! My name is Hannah and I am the Academy Director! I have my Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Development. I love seeing the children learn and discover new things!

We proudly service families in Baltimore and many other surrounding cities. We provide school age transportation to local elementary schools. We believe in family participation, so we encourage parents to visit and volunteer in the classrooms. Ongoing staff training is conducted and our teachers are CPR and First Aid certified. Safety is also a top priority of ours. The main entrance is secured by a unique keypad access system and we ID everyone that enters.

We have new technology in our preschool, pre-k and school-age classes! Preschool and pre-k children have iPads with educational apps and games. Plus, our pre-k class has an Inspire Plus interactive table and features a STEM Lab with hands-on learning experiences in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. For school-agers, we have tripods for moviemaking, robots for coding, a new gaming system, and more!

We love seeing our children move along our school readiness pathway - starting as infants and graduating from our pre-k program. It is our goal to feed inquisitive minds and create lifelong learners.
