Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Kissimmee, FL! My name is Carmen and I am the director of this school for Infant Care and Preschool programs. I hold a National Child Development Associate credential and have more than 20 years of experience.
Our school is nationally accredited through NECPA and has been recognized as a Florida Gold Seal Quality Care program provider.
All of our programs include meals (breakfast, lunch, and P.M. snack). For Infants, Toddler and Twos programs, Cuties diapers and wipes are included in tuition. Our diapers and wipes are hypoallergenic, dye and chlorine free.
WatchMeGrow: (coming soon) we are excited to announce that we will be getting, live stream look from your phone or any smart device to view how your child is doing daily. You will be able to see them interacting with friends and watch as they do their day to day activities in their classroom environments. For the School-age program we offer the Prep Lab which supports your child's distance learning as well as challenging stem projects.
We also want to assure families that the health and safety of everyone is our top priority and we have taken extra measures to help during these times. We have daily/weekly checklists for all teachers to follow our cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting procedures. Everyone receives a health and temperature check each morning as well as everyone washes hands upon arrival and throughout the day.
We service Mill Creek Elementary and Kissimmee Charter schools. We create a welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy. Our teachers have 35 years of combined experience! They are CPR and First Aid certified and they receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state.
We are located on Mill Run Blvd. by Michigan avenue and 192. Schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Kissimmee, FL today!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
