Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Plus, for elementary school students, The Prep Lab offers distance learning support, STEM projects, and more, on a flexible schedule—including a full-day option.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Gambrills, MD! We also serve surrounding areas including Crofton, Bowie, Odenton, and Waugh Chapel! My name is Jillian and I am the academy director. I have been working in child care since 2012 and have a degree in education. I also hold numerous early education certifications including administration.

At La Petite, we partner with parents to ensure we meet the developmental needs of all of our students. In each program - including Infant Care, Early Preschool and more - we create an atmosphere of fun while preparing students for elementary school and beyond.

We are excited to offer new technology in our School-Age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for moviemaking, robots for coding and a secure homework WiFi network. We implement Prep Lab in this classroom as well where we support school-agers through distance learning.

Together, our staff has over 300 years of experience! They participate in training opportunities each year to further advance their knowledge in the field. They provide parents with real-time updates of their child's day using our brightwheel mobile app and, coming soon, WatchMeGrow for live-streaming camera access.

We are currently enrolled in MD EXCELS Quality Assurance Program and while holding a Level One Quality Assurance Status, we hold a level three or higher in three out of the five areas! We are also accredited by NECPA .

*** COVID-19 updates: We are making sure all of our students and staff are staying safe during this time of uncertainty. Here are a few ways our school is helping to ensure the safety of your child and others:

- All staff are required to wear face coverings at all times

- No parents and outside vendors are allowed in our facility at anytime with the exception of emergency personnel.

- Temperature checks are a requirement for students and staff to enter our facility. Temperature must be under 100.4 degrees f.

- Compliance with all CDC regulations are met

A great improvement over our previous daycare. Our child has vastly improved in mood and skills in the time we have been here.
