Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Fort Worth, TX! We are located off of Southwest Blvd. between Bryant Irvin and Vickery near Benbrook. My name is Benita Wassom and I am the Academy Director. I have an Associates of Arts in General Studies and more than 30 years of experience, with the last 25 years spent at La Petite Academy and other sister brands.

In addition to loving Infant care, we also offer superior Preschool programs and more. My philosophy on education is summed up by a quote by Ignacio Estrada: “…if a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” We are committed to our students and families and provide ongoing family activities that encourage strong community ties.

We have new technology in our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms! Children have iPads with educational apps. For School-Agers, we have tripods for movie making, robots for coding, a new gaming system, and more!

Through our active communication, my staff and I are able to provide the very best care to all of our families. More than 80 percent of our staff has been with us for two years or more with a total combined experience of more than 100 years.

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.

Come see all that our La Petite Academy educational daycare in the Benbrook, TX community has to offer. I look forward to meeting you!
