Welcome to our La Petite Academy in Niceville, FL! My name is Kavina and I am the school director. I worked as a teacher here in our program before becoming a team lead, program assistant director, and now center director. I I am confident we offer the best Infant Care, Preschool, and School-Age programs in the area.
The children at our center are attending a NECPA-accredited and Gold Seal program that is safe, secure, and full of active learners. Our facility also offers state-of-the-art cameras in all classrooms and a pass-code secured entrance, which is only accessible by staff and enrolled families.
Communication is important to us and we work hard to ensure that our families are comfortable and have opportunities to meet with one another as well as with their child's caregivers. Our highly-educated staff receives monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state.
We serve the areas of Niceville, Crestview, Destin, Fort Walton, and Freeport. We are in the Merchants Walk shopping center behind Bank of America and near the Winn Dixie shopping center.
We are taking extra precautions to make sure the children at our school are attending a safe, healthy, and clean program. We have implemented temperature checks at the front door and limiting parent access. We are conducting wellness checks throughout the day and our staff members are wearing masks each day. We have also increased our hand-washing and sanitation procedures throughout the building.
Although we have limited parent access, parents can rest assured that their children are safe, secure, as we are soon to launch our WatchMeGrow online streaming video. We offer Prep Lab for our elementary school students with grade level workbooks to bridge the gap of learning.
