Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational child care center in Jacksonville, FL. My name is Tiffany Bowen and I am the Academy Director. I hold a bachelor's degree in child development from Ball State University.

Our Infant, Preschool, and other age-specific programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. The school's staff knows the importance of building relationships as they take the time to get to know each family. Our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state.

Our school is accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation. The standards that we follow are higher than the State of Florida's Child Care Licensing Standards. We create a safe, warm, and welcoming environment for all families and staff.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

Here's what people have to say

4.86 out of 5 stars
Everyone is so loving and kind. I feel safe leaving my son with his teachers everyday. Everyone is nice and always have a smile on their face. Great place for a first time/working mom.
The teachers really care about my child’s well being. He has learned so much.
The staff is always friendly and welcoming. They are patient with the children and have a passion for what they do. The curriculum has helped our child grow and flourish from being shy to an outgoing kid who knows how to share and has manners.
We have had a wonderful experience. Are child has autism and they have worked with us many times with outside therapy coming in to work with her. They have helped us with issues that have come up. And they are always accommodating and very understanding. They treat her with love and respect and are child absolutely adores all the people that work there.
My child has grown in every way
Very warm and friendly staff
I love everything about this school. Since switching from a different daycare, my daughter has made a dramatic improvement. I love how structured the day is. They learn important lessons such as letters, numbers, science, etc. The students are very well behaved and the teachers are very knowledgeable and promote good habits.
