Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Gainesville, FL! My name is Nissa and I am the academy director. I have my Director Credentials in early childhood education, have been at La Petite Academy for nine years and have been in the early childhood field since 1997.

Our Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and other early education programs are designed to meet your child's developmental and educational needs while being fun!

Many of our teachers have been here for four years or longer! Several teachers have bachelor's degrees, associate's degrees and/or CDA's. Continuing education is vital which is why staff participates in training and workshops on a regular basis!

We also like to enjoy special activities such as Pajama Day and Pirate Day, as well as birthday and holiday parties!

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.

Call us to schedule a tour! You will see our La Petite Academy in Gainesville, FL has plenty to offer your family!
