Welcome to La Petite Academy in Ellicott City, MD! My name is Bethanie and I am the academy director! I have a degree in early childhood development and elementary education. I have worked in the field for over 10 years.
Whether it's providing loving care for infants or participating in activities in our preschool programs, I enjoy what I get to do each day and that is to watch so many little ones learn and grow.
Children are the leaders of tomorrow and we understand the importance of their developmental milestones during the early years. Our staff members participate in training throughout the year to ensure we are providing the best care and education for our students.
I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships, as well.
We are excited to share that one of our very own teachers has won our company's prestigious Teacher of the Year award! Our Master Teacher Dana Megaughey is an amazing part of our school and ensures the curriculum is implemented to the highest standards. We are so proud to have her at our center!
Please come tour our La Petite Academy in Ellicott City, MD - we would love for you to be a part of our family.
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More

Education: Early Childhood Development
I have been in the early childhood field for over 10 years and I love helping the children grow and develop into their own person. I have a three-year-old son who loves coming to school to learn and play with his friends. I am so grateful to be able to have the opportunity to teach tomorrow's leaders!
Education: General Studies
I am one of eight children and decided that I wanted a career where I could teach and encourage children the way I helped my brothers and sisters growing up. I have a beautiful little girl named Faith and I am so excited to learn and grow with the children.
Education: General Studies
I recently changed career paths to work here in early childhood development. I am one of eight children and in my free time, my boyfriend and I enjoy going to concerts and watching sports.
