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 and wipes are included in tuition. Our diapers and wipes are hypoallergenic, dye and chlorine free.
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!
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
