Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy an educational preschool in Folsom, CA. My name is Chris and I am the director. I have more than 30 years of experience and a certificate in early childhood education. I started working here as a teacher in 1993.

Our school, including Infant Care, Preschool and other age appropriate options, has been in business since 1987. I strive to create a welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy. We plan a lot of events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships.

We have an outstanding staff that is dedicated to our children and families. They have over 100 years of combined experience. More than half of our staff has been with us for at least five years and one staff member has been here since 1987! All of our staff is CPR certified and has had first aid training.

Schedule a tour today to see what makes La Petite Academy the leading provider of early education and child care in Folsom, CA! I hope to meet you soon!
