Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Federal Way, WA!

Our newly remodeled school has new floors and playgrounds. We provide Infant and Toddler care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and Junior Kindergarten along with various ancillary programs such as dance, soccer, Spanish, and music.

Safety and security are top priorities. We have new interior and exterior cameras to view our classrooms, playgrounds, lobby and entrances and each family is given their own personal access code to enter the building. We also require that every visitor or volunteer show their I.D. upon arrival.

Many of our teachers come to us with several years of experience and we provide annual training and education opportunities for all our staff.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Verified Shopper
Absolutely love everything about this school. The staff, curriculums, atmosphere, location, care for the kids/parents, etc.
Verified Shopper
The staff is so caring and wonderful, I didn't think it would be possible to trust someone else with my child. But the teachers at La Petite are like family to us now, it means the world to us.
Verified Shopper
My son is loved and well cared for. His caregivers are committed and engaged in his care and it is clear that his well being is important to them. He is learning new things every week and making a lot of friends.
Verified Shopper
We have had a good experience. I especially love seeing updates throughout the day via brightwheel- it's hard to leave an infant/toddler at daycare all day so the updates make it easier because I can see that my son is having fun.
Verified Shopper
The overall experience has been very positive. I appreciate the teachers being kind, patient and emotionally available to my child while also educating him. I also appreciate their willingness to communicate with me as a parent.
Verified Shopper
The infant room teachers are all amazing. We get regular updates including pictures of how her day is going.
