Welcome to La Petite Academy an educational preschool and daycare in Folsom, CA. My name is Chris and I am the Academy 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 offer Infant and Toddler Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and School Age programs. We've been open since 1987. I strive to create a welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy.
Safety is our highest priority. Every morning, our students and staff undergo morning temperature and health checks at the front door and must wash their hands as soon as they enter the classrooms and throughout the day. Regular cleaning, sanitation, and disinfection are non-negotiable! Our teachers are required to wear their masks, but don't be fooled--there is a smile underneath those masks!
While families and visitors are no longer allowed in our classrooms, we keep our families in the loop through regular updates on brightwheel. Coming soon, our families will be able to view the fun via live-feed streaming on WatchMeGrow! These are free apps that parents can download on most smart devices.
As elementary school circumstances change, trust that we are equipped to accommodate our distance-learning students. We offer a safe Wifi connection for your child's devices and provide instructional aid, as needed. We have also added The Prep Lab.
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!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

I have worked for La Petite since 1997. Early childhood is the most and rapid period of development in a person and that fascinates me. I have a 16-year-old daughter that was born and raised in La Petite. I love this school!
