Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Plus, for elementary school students, The Prep Lab offers distance learning support, STEM projects, and more, on a flexible schedule—including a full-day option.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Lakeland, FL! My name is Joy and I am the academy director of this school for Infant Care and Preschool programs. I have an associate's degree, a Child Development Associate credential and a National Director's credential as well as more than 12 years of experience.

Our school, established in 1978, is nationally accredited through NECPA and has been recognized as a Florida Gold Seal Quality Care program provider.

Due to COVID-19, we have enhanced our current health and safety procedures to better meet the needs of our families. We are doing temperature checks on all individuals prior to entering the building, all adults are wearing masks, and we are cutting down on outside visitors in an effort to keep illness at bay.

In an effort to better serve our families and provide more peace of mind, we will be offering live camera feed to our families through WatchMeGrow, which will be live by November 30, 2020.

For our families with Elementary School aged children, we are able to accommodate the various options for school this year, due to COVID. Whether your child is attending in school or by virtual class, we can help! We will be providing our before and after care as well as assistance with elearning during the day. Currently, we are providing transportation to South McKeel, Highlands Grove, Highlands City, Carleton Palmore, and Cleveland Court elementary schools. To further support the children during times of uncertainty, we have developed Prep Lab. This program will help bridge the educational gaps that have presented due to COVID-19 and school closures.

We are conveniently located to the Polk Parkway, between New Jersey and Lakeland Highlands Road, close to Edgewood Drive.

From the tour I knew Ms Joy had a true heart for children. That was evident in the first ten minutes of our conversation. To be honest her candor and honesty were refreshing. When we walked through the center, I was shocked at how big it was as from the parking lot it definitely is misleading. I was shown the entire building, I even asked to see the kitchen. I was very impressed with what I saw, teachers

were smiling and singing, kids were laughing and playing and Ms Joy took the time to discuss the curriculum. I am thrilled to have my daughter at this facility and I highly recommend it!
