Welcome! My name is Melissa and I'm the school director at La Petite Academy educational daycare in Lodi, CA! I have 18 years of experience in early childhood education.
This school for infant care, preschool and other age-appropriate programs was established in 1987. More than half of our dedicated and skilled staff members have degrees and many have over five years of child care experience.
Parental involvement is critical to the success of the children, so we have activities that allow them to become familiar with the school and to monitor the progress of their children. Some of these events include Trunk or Treat, Summer BBQ, Parents' Night Out, and more.
The relationships we help create often last a lifetime. It is very common for many of our past students and parents to come back to visit us. Along these same lines, friendships between students that were formed in our center often last into high school and beyond.
Come visit our amazing La Petite Academy educational child care facility in Lodi, CA today. We look forward to meeting your family and showing all we have to offer.
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
