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.
Our school offers Infant and Toddler Care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and School Age programs. More than half of our dedicated and skilled staff members have degrees and many have over five years of child care experience.
We are excited to share our new WatchMeGrow program. WatchMeGrow gives families the opportunity to view their child's activities in their classroom in real time through secured access on your computer, phone, or tablet.
Plus, this fall we are offering The Prep Lab. This program supports school-age students and their families as they face any challenges and changes in their local school district this upcoming school year, with flexible scheduling and even a full-day option. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies.
Health and safety are essential to me, and at our school, they come first. Your child's well-being is always our top priority. Our current health and safety practices include: following guidance from the CDC, temperature checks upon entrance to the building for all, protective face coverings for all adults entering the building and teachers in the classroom, limited classroom access to parents and vendors, and rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices.
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.
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 making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

My career in Early Childhood Education started in 2007 and has been my passion ever since! I love seeing children learn and grow in our school everyday.
