Welcome to our La Petite Academy in Miami, FL. I'm Dayllane Lopez, Director of this center. I have been working for La Petite for eight years and have more than 17 years of experience in early childhood education.
Our school provides first-rate Infant Care, Preschool, VPK and other early childhood education options. Our school is nationally accredited through NECPA and is a proud participant in Florida's Gold Seal Quality Care program.
We strive to create a warm and welcoming environment. In this challenging, uncertain time, we recognize the strain the current climate creates for families. We remain committed to doing everything possible to support our community. That starts with a healthy, safe environment for your child when they're away from home. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment. Face coverings are required for any adult entering the building (all staff members wear them when working with children). We've strengthened our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices and to curb the spread of germs and control group size, we are having parents and family members remain in common areas of the center only. We employ these measures to ensure your child can learn in the best environment possible.
Being apart from your child can be a challenge. That's why we're excited to provide ways for you to stay connected. With WatchMeGrow live streaming video, you'll be able to view your child's classroom on any smart device or computer, to see them learn, play, and grow every day.
We know there is much uncertainty about the upcoming school year. The Prep Lab™program offers flexible scheduling, including a new full-day option, and distance learning support, based on your local school district’s plans for school age students.

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
