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.

Along with servig preschool children we also transport to three local elementary schools. The schools we service are Marlowe, Cottee River and Seven Springs.

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.
