Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Jacksonville, FL! My name is Deadre Pryor and I am the academy director. I currently hold a CDA and a Level II VPK Endorsed Director Credential. I have more than 16 years of experience in early childhood education.

Established in 1991, our academy offers children a nurturing environment in our Infant care, Preschool and other early education programs. We are accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation and also hold Gold Seal Status with the State of Florida.

Our teachers are enthusiastic early childhood education professionals who stay current with monthly training sessions and ongoing training offered by the state. Additionally, all teachers and management staff are certified in CPR and First Aid. We are proud to boast that we have a combined 100 years of early childhood education experience!

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

We are located on Beach Blvd. between Atlantic Storage and U-Store, across the street from Denny's. We are in the block between Hodges Blvd. and San Pablo Rd. We also provide before and after care to Alimacani and Chet's Creek elementary schools. We are confident La Petite Academy offers the best education-driven child care in Jacksonville, FL.

The staff is incredibly kind and I feel like my child is in good hands. The structure is very important and my child is showing signs of skilled motor patterns and speech since enrolling.

The director and staff members are awesome! There was a peaceful presence when I first took my daughter to school and still remain. There’ no high turnover of teachers(which speak volumes to me) We are greeted with a warm welcoming and caring smile everyday. I’m always amazed at how disciplined, and focused the children are. No kids are screaming or crying as if they don’t want to be there. My child
LOVES this school. And I love it for that reason. I’m at ease when I leave my child at school knowing that she is safe, loved and having a great time.
