Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy at Briar Forest! My name is Denisha and I am the academy director. I have a passion for early learners and a love for early education. I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology from Houston Baptist University as well as a Masters degree in Early Education, with a focus on curriculum, from Concordia University. I am currently pursuing an Education Doctorate, focusing on Leadership and transformational learning. I have over 10 years of experience in education, working as a volunteer, mentor, educator and within leadership.

The staff members that support our programs are all CPR/First Aid certified and have either completed or are working toward the completion of a degree. Our staff members truly enjoy working with the children enrolled in our academy and building relationships with the families we serve. Our academy practices an open door policy and encourages parent participation to help foster strong bonds between staff members, families and students--an essential part of a quality early learning experience. Our staff members are professional, consistent and tenured with more than 100 years of combined experience between them!

From our fantastic teachers to our approaches to technology and our exciting electives, we take pride in our academy and can't wait to show off what we have to offer! We encourage you to drop by or schedule a tour today and look forward to meeting you and making you part of the La Petite family at Briar Forest.

See you soon!

Here's what people have to say

4.86 out of 5 stars
Overall, we love our school. Any concerns we raise are immediately addressed and we felt heard and respected. The staff all appear to genuinely love our children and they keep them safe and cared for.
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.
Staff is very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is full of great energy. I love the the playground, it's really well maintained
