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 Prep Lab program provides school agers the opportunity to bridge the gap from missed instructional time before the next school year.
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.
All of our families receive live updates on their child's day with pictures, videos, meal updates and more sent through the brightwheel mobile app! Here at La Petite safety is our number one goal. To ensure each and every family feels safe we have developed safe and healthy guidelines that all staff and families follow each and every day. We are practicing social distancing throughout our classrooms and restricting visits of any kind. As we move through COVID-19, we will practice health screenings and extensive sanitization of all areas of the building. We currently provide WatchMeGrow as an added benefit for families so that they can observe their children as they engage and learn throughout the day. This benefit to our families allows them to see first hand that their children are with loving, caring teachers who’s number one goal is to provide them with a safe and healthy learning environment in which to help them reach their full potential.
With uncertainty all around us in relation to school 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.

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

The cliché of "I love working with children" has been used so many times, but it's absolutely true! I love the spontaneity and continuous joy they bring! With over 30 years of child care experience, I'm happy to say my home has been here at La Petite for the last 18 years.
