Welcome to Our School

Welcome! My name is Erika and I am the director at La Petite Academy in Germantown, MD. I have had the pleasure of working in the education field for 9 years and I hold my degree in Family Studies from University of Maryland at College Park.

Our school provides infant care as well as Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs. We also service most of the elementary schools in the surrounding area.

We have new technology in our Preschool, Pre-K and School-Age classes! Preschool and Pre-K children have iPads with educational apps. Plus, our preschool class has an Inspire Plus interactive table and our Pre-K class features a STEM Lab with learning experiences in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. For school-age students, we have tripods for movie-making, robots for coding, a new gaming system, and more!

Safety and security is our number one priority. The main entrance is secured by a unique keypad access system and we ID everyone that enters. We also communicate with parents using a mobile app that provides real-time updates of their child's day.

Our teachers are highly-skilled professionals with many years of experience in early childhood education. They participate in yearly education training.

We would love to show you what we offer at La Petite Academy educational daycare in Germantown! Schedule a tour today!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
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.
Outstanding experience - teachers go above and beyond what is required and provide a welcoming, nurturing, and active learning environement.
We have absolutely loved our experience so far! Our daughter's teachers and the Director staff have been outstanding; they genuinely care about her and her development and growth, and she adores them. As first time parents, they are also always ready and willing to answer our many questions. We could not have asked for a better experience.
Its a great, comforting place for the child as well as the parent.
The teacher's are warm and engaging and we love Ms. Erika!
Staff is very warm and our daughter loves her teachers; thank you for the Spanish class, which she also loves
