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 Academy educational daycare in Frederick, MD. My name is Tammy and I am the center director. I have worked in the education field for over 20 years!

We are proud to be a NECPA-accredited school! Our center offers programs for children ages six weeks to 12 years old through our Infant Care, Preschool and School-Age programs.

Our teachers are loving, engaging and professional, and they put the needs of the children first. The average teacher has been here for eight years! Our teachers are CPR and First Aid certified and they participate in training opportunities throughout the year.

We pride ourselves on developing strong relationships with each one of our families. We encourage them to get involved by offering a number of special events including game nights, Parents' Night Out, and more.

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.
