Director and staff have been friendly and welcoming since we started taking our child to this daycare. Communication is great, curriculum is good, and our child is safe and happy. It is very important to us that the people caring for our child while we are at work treat him how we would and as far as I can tell, La Petite staff do!
Verified Shopper
The classrooms are well staffed and the teachers are quite attentive. I like that the classes are small so each child may get an equitable amount of attention. The staff communicates well and often informs us of the small milestones each day.
