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!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Soccer, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math
In our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms your child will discover opportunities to be creative, engage their mind and body, collaborate with friends, and learn new things. Some enhancements in the classrooms include iPads with educational apps; flexible seating options so children can move as they learn; hands-on STEM activities with robots for early coding.
In our School-Age classroom, your child will find an immersive educational environment that is the perfect setting for productive, engaging mornings and afternoons, as we help them to be thinkers, makers, and doers. Some enhancements in this classroom include:
Education: Bachelor's Degree in Family Studies from University of Maryland, College Park
Certifications: ADA, Medication Administration, First Aid and CPR, Supporting Breastfeeding in Child Care, Director Pre-service Training
Children must feel enriched, safe and secure in their own classroom environment. I strive to achieve this through support, celebrating differences, praise and encouragement, not only in the pursuit of academic excellence but in the development of respect, ethical values and social skills.
Education: Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Development & Associates of Arts in Music from Frederick Community College
Certifications: ADA, Medication Administration, First Aid and CPR, Supporting Breastfeeding in Child Care
The health and safety of your child is my number one priority. Once a child feels and knows they are safe and secure in their environment, everything else follows suit naturally. Together with my team of amazing, loving, caring and creative teachers, I am committed to providing your family with the highest quality of care while promoting a lifetime love of learning.
