Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy, a NECPA-accredited and Gold Seal approved child care center in Margate, FL! My name is Shandisha "Shandy" Collins, and I am the academy director. I have been in the early childhood education field for the past 21 years. I also have my director's credentials and a Bachelor's degree in Early Care and Education.

I love being the director of this school for Infant Care and Preschool because the staff, children, and families make this feel like it is my second home.

I work to create a safe, warm, and welcoming environment and maintain open communication with every family. We are committed to health and safety which is our top priority. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials: staff members wearing masks, taking temperatures, limited classroom access and size, and wellness checks.

Our center plans many events to ensure that our families meet each other and build strong relationships. We also work hard to involve our families in activities we offer throughout the school year, such as Parents' Night Out and field trips.

All of our teachers have the Florida Child Care Professional Credential and are certified in CPR/first aid. They also receive at least 45 hours of early childhood training.

We are thrilled to offer free Live Streaming Video at our school. With our new Live Streaming Video technology, you’ll be able to view your child’s activities in the classroom on any smart device or computer. Deployed, traveling, or just plain buy parents will be able to see their child learn, play, and grow every day.

Come join us today! Schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Margate, FL!

5 out of 5 stars
I am very grateful to have found a school that really cares about the kids. They greet my baby every morning and she is soo happy to be there. I recommend any parents that need a tdaycare to look into la petite.
Overall, this has been the best decision I’ve made when I enrolled my children. The staff genuinely loves my children. The school is always clean. The office staff, Ms.Shandy and Ms. Aneilia are always available when you need them. Also, my children have the best teachers. The best school in Margate if you ask me.

My child has been attending school since she was 6 weeks old, we love being part of the la petite family.
I love this school. I am almost sad my son will be going into kindergarten at public school shortly. Love the staff. They not only teach my son all day, but it seems they kind of parent him as well. They show love and discipline in a great way.
