Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy in Melbourne, FL. My name is Marci and I am the academy director. I have been with the La Petite family since 1996!

Our accredited school for Infant Care, Preschool and more goes above and beyond the basic requirements of the Department of Children and Families. Our staff is required 30 hours of annual in-service training per year which is 20 more hours than required! Together, our staff has more than 100 years of experience.

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.

We are a staple of our community and have served the families in Melbourne, Rockledge, Merritt Island, and Palm Bay for over 20 years.
