Welcome to La Petite Academy in Gambrills, MD! We also serve surrounding areas including Crofton, Bowie, Odenton, Waugh Chapel, Millersville and Crownsville! 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.
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.
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 .
