Welcome to La Petite Academy! I am Francheska, the academy director, I have been in the Early Childhood field since 2008. I have an Associate’s degree in early childhood education.
Our school has been in the community for over 40 years providing daycare and educational learning experiences to children 6 weeks to 12 years old, we have the best Infant, Preschool and School-Age program in Kissimmee.
