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.

We provide before and after care to Alimacani and Chet's Creek elementary schools. Here at La Petite we help our elementary aged children stay current with grade level education via our Prep Lab utilizing workbooks. We are dedicated to keeping our children and staff safe with temperature checks at arrival and limiting families and visitors access to classrooms to prevent the spread of germs. We are following guidelines from the CDC and clean all touched surfaces throughout the day. We will be soon be launching WatchMeGrow live video feed for our families to view their child in their classroom while at their home or office. 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.

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 are confident La Petite Academy offers the best education-driven child care in Jacksonville, FL. Call today to schedule a tour!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Wonderful. We love our la Petite family.
We love the school and staff. Mrs. Carol and Amanda in infant and baby class are amazing. They are always friendly and discuss with us what our baby has done that day.
I like that all the employees know my grandson's name and are friendly to him.
Staff is so friendly and loving. The facility is clean and inviting.
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.
