Welcome to La Petite Academy educational child care in Gaithersburg, MD! My name is Danielle and I am the academy director. I have an associate's degree in early childhood development as well as over 20 years of experience in the early childhood education field.
Drawing from my background, I can truly say we offer the best Infant Care and Preschool in Montgomery County. We follow a STEM approach which incorporates various technologies from our Preschool through our School-Age programs. If you're looking for School-Age care, we also service most of the area elementary schools.
