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!
