Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in New Port Richey, FL! My name is Ann Marie and I am the academy director. I have an associate's degree in early childhood education as well as 33 years of management experience.

Our school, including Infant Care and Preschool programs, is nationally accredited by NECPA. The standards that we follow are higher than the State of Florida's Child Daycare Licensing Standards.

I strive to create a warm and welcoming child care environment here in New Port Richey and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We have implemented even stronger safety protocols, face mask are required for all staff and parents who enter the office area, every person who enters the building will have their temperature checked, and extra sanitizing of toys and high touch areas.

We are also excited to offer live streaming video so parents can have a view into their children's classroom. We accept ELC and Voluntary Pre-K. We offer School-Age children a challenging STEM curriculum and are happy to now offer The Prep Lab to help keep the students on track during these uncertain time. We also drop off and pick-up from Sunray, Marlowe, Seven Springs.

We have an outstanding staff that is dedicated to our children and families. All of our teachers receive monthly training provided by the state.

5 out of 5 stars
It's a well run and safe environment for children. Your organization has a focus on education and child growth.
My general experience has been wonderful. The teachers care about my kids and I see improvements everyday they come home!
The staff is wonderful. My son loves miss Shannon. He’s excited to go to school everyday and see his friends and teacher. I’m very thankful for that, it has made it so much easier on him and me for his first at vpk.
Love the school and its teachers
Everyone goes above and beyond to make the parents and children feel comfortable with being at this school.
We absolutely love La Petite. The teachers are very personable and down to earth. Our babies love their teachers and are excited to see them everyday. The interaction the teachers have with the kids is absolutely amazing and reassuring. Our little one has grown so much in the short time he has been with the daycare. The entire staff is welcoming and seems to know our children even if they are
not in their class. We love the updates through out the day and the love etc that is provided to our children.
