Keeping Families Connected

Our families mean the world to us and keeping them connected is one of our main goals. That’s why we created SproutAbout®, our exclusive family communications app that features live streaming video of the classroom and much, much more.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite in Frederick! My name is Jessica and I am the center director. I have an associate’s degree in Early Childhood education from the University of Bryant and Stratton and more than 20 years of experience. I have been with the La Petite family since 2016.

As a nationally accredited center, all lead teachers have a bachelor's or associate's degree in education or a related field. All teachers are CPR and First Aid certified and receive monthly training.

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.

We value the relationships we have with our families and work hard to involve them and build a school community. We can't wait to welcome you to our family. Schedule a tour today!

My passion for people and children is what drove me into this field. Seeing that "spark" in a child's eye, keeps me motivated and driven to making the Early Childhood Education field a great place for children. The best part about my job is helping the teacher be successful, grow, and make an impact on children's lives. I enjoy music, cooking, the outdoors, and making memories with my family!
