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.
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.
