Supporting Our Community

Now Scheduling Virtual Tours

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.

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 the school-age child.

Health and safety is our top priority. Throughout our school, we've strengthened our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices by including more frequent hand washing and cleaning and sanitizing surfaces,touch points, and toys. Additional updated health and safety practices include: All staff members must wear masks when inside the building and health screening all staff members and children upon arrival at the school.

For peace of mind throughout the day, we use the mobile app Brightwheel to communicate real time updates of your child’s daily activity and coming soon is WatchMeGrow! This added benefit will allow families access to a live stream view of their child’s classroom space to observe their little ones as they engage in learning throughout the day!

The Prep Lab is also our solution to assist children with online virtual learning. Our teachers assist and support your child's distance learning requirements, share challenging weekly STEM projects, and provide character-developing activities from our My Best Self™ curriculum.

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.

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

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
I find the activities each day to be so creative and thoughtful. I can tell my child is learning- his vocabulary is expanding and his learning how to control his emotions.
Organized, safe, educational, friendly and flexible.
Great staff & great leadership!The staff is caring and very engaged. The director is heavily engaged with a lot programs & special enrichment. She really cares about her kids and her staff.The brightwheel app is awesome, receiving pictures, videos and updates throughout the day makes it much easier on new parents to transition and trust your child is in great care.
Staff are friendly and welcoming.
Great! I love our director, Ms. Erika, she's really brought in more families and scheduled a lot of great events that are fun to do with my son.
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.
The director and the whole team of teachers are very caring and loving people.
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.
My grand daughter loves attending this school. She loves her teachers, friends, water play and art activities.
We are very happy with La Petite. Communication with Erika and Amy has been excellent and we feel as though literally the whole school has welcomed Declan. We thought about enrolling our older son here a few years ago and I’m very glad that we did so with our younger one.
