The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy of Margate, FL.

Your children are a part of a safe and educational environment that is both diverse and enriching in order to set children on an early trajectory toward personal success.

One of our primary focuses in our Infant to Preschool programs is to teach through play, in order to cultivate kinesthetic and cognitive development.

Our teachers are dedicated to providing the highest standards of learning and care for your child. They are all certified in First Aid and CPR and have many years of experience. They also participate in ongoing training to ensure they are the best in their field.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.
