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.
In light of COVID, what we are doing to maintain a safe and healthy environment include: Temperature checks of all staff and children prior to entering the building each day. Limiting of parents and visitors through school by escorting children from front door to classrooms and escorting children to their parents at pickup. Continuous cleaning and sanitizing all surfaces, materials, toys and touch points throughout the day with bleach solution. As staff close a classroom the entire classroom is sanitized using a bleach solution. Our school is safe and open to serve at this time.
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!
We offer Prep Lab for School-Age to support e-learning and focus on math and literacy, plus we're launching WatchMeGrow live-streaming camera access for our families! Many of our teachers have been here for four years or longer! Several teachers have bachelors degrees, associates degrees and/or CDA's. Continuing education is vital which is why staff participates in training and workshops on a regular basis!
We enjoy special activities such as Pajama Day and Pirate Day, as well as birthday and holiday parties!
Safety and security are of the utmost importance. Our front door is keypad-secured and only authorized family and staff are given the code.
