Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Orlando, FL! We offer Infant, Preschool, and Before- and After-School programs! We are licensed through DCF, accredited through NECPA, and have been recognized as a Florida Gold Seal Quality Care program provider. Our Prep Lab offers school-agers the support they need through distance learning.

Our current health and safety practices are screening staff and children upon arrival for temperature. Providing protective face coverings for all staff members to wear when working with children. Having parents remain in common areas only. Enhancing our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices such as more frequent, longer hand washing through out the day and upon arrival.

For our infants, we include infant formula, baby cereal and baby food. We participate in the Federal Food Program, so you can rest assured knowing that your child is eating healthy with milk, whole grains, water, and no fried foods! Also, for all children two years and under, we provide the diapers (or pull ups) and wipes!

Teachers stay current with monthly training sessions as well as ongoing training offered by the state. All of our teachers are cleared with Level 2 FBI/FDLE background screenings and are certified in pediatric CPR and first aid! We have teachers that have been with our school for five and even 13 years!

Our school is located in S. Orlando by Central Fl Parkway and Orange Blossom Trail. We provide transportation for children attending Waterbridge Elementary school.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Finding a safe place to leave your most priceless possessions can be mind racking. I looked at almost a dozen different places before I found La Petite. I absolutely love it here! My children have been attending since they were two months and 3 years later I am still extremely happy with my choice in La Petite.

I have been working with children for over 13 years. I've been a teacher and a manager, and I love it all! I truly enjoy being apart of our families' lives every day! Ever since I was a little girl I always knew I wanted to work with children. I believe all kids deserve to have a safe educational environment to learn and grow in. We strive every day to provide a lasting education in each child that comes through our center. My goal is to make a great impression that will stay with them forever.

I started working with children 15 years ago and have been with La Petite for four years. I taught English to preschoolers in my home country. I love working with kids - it might be challenging, but it's very rewarding. My three-year-old son and I love being part of the La Petite family.

I always knew I wanted to work with children. I'm from Puerto Rico and moved to Florida in 2002 with my loving husband and kids. It is a privilege to be a part of one of the most important stages in a child's life.
