Here's what people have to say

4.9 out of 5 stars
Positive experience overall. Good communication both via phone, in-person, and with the app. Appreciate the videos and pictures sent throughout the day.
My favorite thing is how all of the staff gently communication with the children. The environment they have created for the children is outstanding! All of the staff only want the best emotional and educational growth for the children. My children love it and ask every day when they wake up “Can I go to school today”? Sometimes this happens on Saturdays and I have to explain school is closed Saturdays.
They love it and so do I!The staff at this location, especially the Director, has been extremely kind and helpful to my family and we truly appreciate all of their hard work and big hearts!

Excellent! We are truly grateful for the good work and spirit of all staff members and teachers!
My son really thrives at LPA, he loves his teachers and staff genuinely. The center has given him a huge head start heading into kindergarten and now going into 1st grade I see how confident and excited he is in his learning abilities. Everyone at the center, especially his teachers, Ms. Martha, Ms. Wendie and Ms. Sarah are always friendly and professional. I trust LPA completely with my son!
The team is warm and friendly. My daughter has had great experiences there. I love the curriculum, the communication and the engagement that the teachers have with not only the students, but the parents as well. Don't change a thing.
We absolutely love La Petite Academy. Ms. Marnie has been such a wonderful teacher and our son looks forward to going to school every day. Everyone is so warm and kind- we feel really lucky to have found this school. Even though it is a bit of a hike from our house we wouldn't dream of changing schools. It's been so fun to see our son grow, change, and learn!
We have loved the school! The teachers are awesome and the communication has been so great. The teachers truly care for our child and it is so evident.
I’ve noticed la Petite has been around for quite some time now that should say enough about their reputation. My first hand experience with all of the teachers were very welcoming. Everyone is so kind, very involved as far always giving me updates about how my kids are doing. Even some of the teachers that are just in the class next to my kids, they always seem to greet me and tell me how well they
do once I leave if ever they are experiencing any anxiety about going to school! Glad to be apart of the family!
