I love the school. They have far exceeded my expectations for a daycare. I enjoy interacting with the staff and they seem to love caring for my son. Even the teachers who aren’t directly involved in caring for him say hello and goodbye and everyone always calls him by name.

We love La Petite Academy. The teachers are caring and attentive. I like how the kids have curriculum for learning, but the atmosphere still allows them to be kids and is not too strict or demanding. I like that this school is part of a large provider and has policies in place for providing the best care. It is also conveniently located to my home. I also really enjoy seeing my kids' daily activities
