Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Columbia, SC! My name is Dianne and I am the director. I've spent 31 years at La Petite Academy with 27 of those years as a director.
I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you how our Infant Care and Preschool programs are sure to exceed your expectations.
