Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite in Frederick! My name is Alison and I am the director. I have a Bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from the University of Maryland and more than 15 years of experience. I have been with the La Petite family since 2013 and have watched my son grow up here.

We know that communication, health and safety, education and trust are so important when searching for the right early learning center. Teachers can communicate with you in real-time throughout the day through our brightwheel application. Additionally, live-streaming of our classrooms through our WatchMeGrow app will be available for our families soon. Your ability to have a peak into your child day combined with our top notch parent communication sets us apart from other schools in the area and offers you the sense of comfort every parent is looking for. And, as an added bonus, meals, diapers and wipes are all included in tuition!

As a nationally accredited center, all lead teachers have a bachelors or associates degree in education or a related field. All teachers are CPR and First Aid certified and receive monthly training. As a part or our accreditation, we hold ourselves to higher health and safety protocols. We have recently enhanced our safety protocols as they relate to COVID-19 adding daily temperature and health checks, more rigorous handwashing and cleaning protocols and the limiting of all visitors to common areas of our school.

For School-Age students, we are here for you with distance learning support and curriculum enhancements through our new Prep Lab program which extends the students school day and offers opportunity for hands on STEM learning. Transportation to many local schools is offered.

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!

My passion for people and children is what drove me into this field. The best thing about my job is giving teachers the tools to be successful and inspiring them to be great educators. I'm also a sports enthusiast - you'll find me cheering on a favorite team or on the sideline at my kid's game.

I have worked with children in an educational capacity for seven years now and I am grateful to be a part of each child’s learning journey; watching them grow their talents and develop new skills.
