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 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.

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. 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. I love spending my time engaging with the children and teachers within the classrooms and building a sense of community so our center feels like a second home for all.
