My daughter loves her teachers and her friends, i can notice how far she has advanced. The school staff do a good job.
Verified Shopper
I love LaPetite! I feel all of the teachers love what they do. My daughter comes home with stories each day about what teacher let her do in their room that day. My daughter loves familiar faces, and feels safe with them. If someone is out, she noticing immediately and asks about them. She looks forward to going everyday. We have to remind her regularly that ‘school’ is closed on Saturday and Sunday
and that she can see her teachers and friends again on Monday.
