Welcome to our La Petite Academy in Merritt Island, FL! My name is Kelly and I am the academy director. We are so much more than a daycare! I am confident that we offer the best infant care, preschool and other age-specific programs in the area due to our unique curriculum. Our curriculum is assessment-based for all ages and our teachers are trained to effectively implement lesson plans and assess the development of their students every day.
Every employee is certified in first aid, CPR and fire safety. They participate in training throughout the year to stay current in the field of early childhood education.
We are committed to providing the quality care that your family expects and deserves while ensuring a safe and secure school for all children. Our facility features a secured front door that requires a code for entry.

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
