Supporting Our Community

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 La Petite Academy at Briar Forest! My name is Katie Wentworth and I am the academy director. My goal is to provide a safe nurturing environment where children can explore and discover the world around them. I have been a Director for the past eighteen years. I am very passionate about children and believe that building relationships with our families is an integral aspect of learning.

Although this current climate of uncertainty poses challenges and stress for parents and students alike, our school remains committed to supporting our families and our community in every way possible. We have restructured our programs and procedures to provide an environment that is dedicated to the safety and health of our families and staff members and flexible in order to accommodate working parents and the new school norm of distanced and virtual learning, all while continuing to provide the exceptional learning opportunities La Petite Academy is known for.

We follow the guidance of national and local health officials, while also implementing enhanced health and safety procedures to include: protective face masks worn by all staff members, health and wellness checks both prior to drop-off and throughout the day, as well as limited access to classrooms and throughout the building. Parents can stay connected throughout the day through WatchMe Grow, a live video stream, and brightwheel, a communication app that displays the intricate details of each child's day.

As we work to maintain a sense of normalcy for our students and families during these unprecedented times, we are truly thankful for our fantastic teachers and staff members who are genuinely passionate about early learners and early education. We each take pride in our academy and can't wait to show off what we have to offer! We encourage you to schedule a tour today and look forward to meeting you and making you part of the La Petite family at Briar Forest.

Stay safe and stay healthy! See you soon!

So consistent with being warm, caring, efficient in the mornings at drop off and at the end of the day at pick up. Really a wonderful nurturing environment for my grand child . I am forever grateful every day not to have to worry at ALL about him :) I would highly recommend La Petite to any Mom , Dad, or Grand Parent for quality care!

We’re very pleased with the feeling at the school with the new director. We get more photos from the class to see what our child is doing during the day to learn and grow. The teachers are very loving and our son feels very comfortable there.

My daughter has been here for five years. She loves “going to school” and playing with her friends. The teachers have been great the whole time.

Love the school. Our oldest just moved on to Jr. High. He'd been at La Petite since he was an infant. Our youngest just entered 3rd grade. She also has attended La Petite since she was an infant. The care and capability of the staff and director kept us from ever considering moving.

We absolutely love our daughter's teachers! Leaving my daughter to return to work was probably the hardest thing I've ever done, but the genuine affection & care they show my daughter assuages my fears & worries. The service they provide is truly priceless.
