Welcome to Our School

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.

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
wonderful experience with staff and teachers.
Love the school teachers, leaders
Wonderful. As a parent it is nice to feel like staff cares and makes an effort to respect your wishes and address concerns. Staff is very friendly and actively engaged with the children.
The staff and Lisa, the director, are amazing. Lisa makes herself so available for my questions and the things our family needs. She is genuinely working to provide a place for our children to learn and develop (community outreach in November, Halloween reading challenge, halloween trunk or treat event, center leadership and parents meeting, to name a few that recently occurred). Overall we continue
to be impressed with the center and can’t wait to see what the future brings with the center!

La Petite is a nurturing, family friendly, and environment. My kids love going there and I have peace of mind while at work. The teachers communicate daily using the brightwheel app so I know how my kids are doing. The director is very involved and follows through with her actions.
The director and all of the teachers care a great deal about the kids. The staff is routinely building a strong sense of community, making improvements around the facility, getting the parents involved, and overall putting a great deal of time and effort to make this a great place for the kids and a place where parents are comfortable leaving their children in their care. We've been customers for over
6 years now and would absolutely recommend the Spring Ridge facility to anyone looking for daycare options.
