Welcome to La Petite Academy in Frederick, MD! My name is Lisa and I am the academy director. I have my degree in early childhood education and over 22 years of experience.
This past year has brought on new challenges that none of us have ever had to deal with. But we tackle each day with safety of the children and staff at the forefront with procedures such as temperature checks, wellness checks, and curbside drop-off to minimize classroom access, to name a few.
Drawing from my background, I can confidently say La Petite Academy offers the best infant daycare and private preschool programs in Frederick. Most of our teachers have been with our school for over 15 years! Ongoing staff training is conducted to keep our teachers on top of the early education field. We also provide diapers, wipes and homemade meals!
We have new technology in our Preschool, Pre-K and School-Age classes! Preschool and Pre-K children have iPads with educational apps and games. Plus, our Preschool class has an Inspire Plus interactive table and our Pre-K class features a STEM Lab with hands-on learning experiences in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. For school-agers, we have tripods for moviemaking, robots for coding, a new gaming system, and more! We also offer our Prep Lab program in School-Age to bridge the gap between school years and support distance learning in the public schools.
We plan monthly events and I work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships. Community outreach is very important here and I have created a few programs to help create a stronger community. One group, La Petite Preschool Parent Association, is designed to meet and come up with great new events for the center. I have also created Moms on a Mission which is designed for moms to meet and support each other through fun outings!
We are nationally accredited and the standards we follow are higher than those required by the state. Safety is a priority here and the main entrance is secured by a unique keypad access system and we ID everyone that enters. We'll offer WatchMeGrow, live-streaming camera access, to all of our families so they can feel connected throughout the day.

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 creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
