Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Ocoee, FL! My name is Michelle and I am the director of this school for Infant Care and Preschool programs. I hold a National Child Development Associate credential and have more than 28 years of experience.
Our school, established in 1981, is nationally accredited through NECPA and has been recognized as a Florida Gold Seal Quality Care program provider. We're also proud to announce that we scored a 94 on our most recent VPK assessment!
All of our programs include meals (breakfast, lunch, and P.M. snack). For infants, toddler and twos programs, Cuties diapers are included in tuition.
We service Westbrooke and Thornbrooke elementary schools. Our families come from different areas, including Windermere, Ocoee, Orlando and Winter Garden. I create a welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy. Our teachers have 100 years of combined experience! They are CPR and First Aid certified and receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state.

Through life experiences and personal growth, I realized that giving back to children was my heart's desire. I have always loved management and the fulfillment of being a leader. Putting the two together has led me on a wonderful journey of over 20 years in child care.

I have always been great with kids. My passion to get involved sparked from having a child of my own. I knew I wanted to be a part of not only my child's growth and development, but also the growth of children around the world.
