Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Ocoee, FL! My name is Melissa and I am the director of this school for Infant Care and Preschool programs. I hold a National Child Development Associate credential and a Bachelor in Psychology.
Our school, established in 1981, is nationally accredited through NECPA and has been recognized as a Florida Gold Seal Quality Care program provider.
All of our programs include meals (breakfast, lunch, and P.M. snack). For Infants, Toddler and Twos programs, Cuties diapers and wipes are included in tuition. Our diapers and wipes are hypoallergenic, dye and chlorine free. We also offer all families free Live Streaming Video, where you can stay connected while you are at work. We also except VPK vouchers as well as School Readiness contracts.
We also want to assure families that the health and safety of everyone is our top priority and we have taken extra measures to help during these times. We have daily/weekly checklists for all teachers to follow our cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting procedures. Everyone receives a health and temperature check each morning as well as everyone washes hands upon arrival and throughout the day.
We service Westbrooke and Thornbrooke Elementary schools. Our families come from different areas, including Windermere, Ocoee, Orlando and Winter Garden. We 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.
We are located on Winshire Boulevard in the Windermere Groves neighborhood off of Maguire Rd., Key Isle and the Cross Creek neighborhood directly across Maguire Rd. Schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Ocoee, FL today!
