Welcome to Our School

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

Our newly remodeled school has new floors, playgrounds and a STEM room. We provide infant and toddler care, preschool and pre-kindergarten, along with various ancillary programs such as yoga, soccer, Spanish, and music. For our parents, we offer a mobile app that provides real time updates and photos of their child's day.

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.

Call us today to schedule a tour and to see our amazing La Petite Academy in Federal Way, WA!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
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.
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.
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.
The infant room teachers are all amazing. We get regular updates including pictures of how her day is going.
We love it here and the staff, as well as our child.
Teachers are great, especially Ms. Melody!
The entire staff is wonderful. They all encourage my son to learn and work better with other kids. I’m very happy I enrolled my son at La Petite!!
They truly are the best daycare.
