Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy Lake Mary, FL! My name is Kristen and I am the director. Our school offers care for Infants through School age. We are located off of I-4 on Lake Emma Rd. We provide breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack to every child in our care. We also provide diapers, pull ups and wipes for all children in our Infant, Toddler, and Twos classrooms. We also have a Before-and After-School program. Now, more than ever, your focus is on ensuring your child’s learning stays on track. We’re here to help. Our teachers have been trained to support local school districts distance learning so children stay on course with their studies. Your child can bring a device from home to complete distance learning assignments with our help. We’re here to back you up (plus your child’s teachers) and strengthen your child’s ability to finish school work each day.

The Prep Lab for School-Age is a program designed to:

-Support your child’s distance learning requirements

-Share challenging weekly STEM projects

-Provide character-developing activities from our My Best Self!™ curriculum

We are also excited about our Family Communication App for parents that provides them with updates on their child's day via their smart phone! We are excited to offer free Live-Streaming Video to your computer or mobile device.

We are doing everything we can to provide a healthy, safe, and clean environment. It starts at the front door by temperature checking every child and staff member that enters the building. All staff members are wearing masks while in the building. We are limiting classroom access, having wellness checks throughout the day, dining safely but still healthy by eliminating family style dining, and keeping things clean by having increased hand washing, cleaning and sanitizing. We're closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local authorities to enhance our already robust health and safety procedures.
