Welcome to Our School

Welcome to the Germantown La Petite. We are located at 19901 Father Hurley Blvd on the corner of Wisteria Drive. My name is Amy Wiles and I am the center director. With my many years of experience, I can confidently say that our school provides the highest quality of care and education for children as early as six weeks through School-Age.

Our teachers are highly skilled professionals with many years of experience in early childhood education. Upon hiring, all staff are subjected to extensive background checks and also required to participate in yearly education training.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

I would love to show you all the amazing things we have here at our school, please schedule a tour today!

A very warm and inviting welcome from the Director when we came in for a tour. My son enjoyed the atmosphere and all the kids that were around. Since then he speaks more and is more responsive when communicating with others outside his home.

Our experience has been great! Everyone clearly loves and cares for our daughter and she loves being there. We cannot be more grateful for the school's offerings (e.g. Brightwheel) and how responsive the Director and teachers are regarding any questions or concerns we have.
