Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Pensacola, FL! My name is Philisa and I am the center director. I have a CDA, my 40 Hours Director Certificate and also a Technical College Credential. I have been working in early childhood education for 28 years. Drawing from my background, I can confidently say that our Infant Care, Preschool and other early educational programs are second to none!

Here at La Petite, we treat everyone involved like they are an extension of our own families. We have a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk. We plan a lot of events for everyone to participate in to ensure our families meet each other and develop strong relationships.

We have long-term staff members who are dedicated to our children and families. More than half of our teachers have more than five years of teaching experience. All of our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state.

We are happy to show you our facility and answer all questions you have. Schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Pensacola, FL today!

Here's what people have to say

4.67 out of 5 stars
It amazing. I only have good things to say
I have been very pleased with the teachers, office staff and director. Both of my boys are learning and seem to be comfortable in their classes.
Friendly staff and they know us by first name which really adds a personal touch. The brightwheel app has been amazing! I enjoy seeing what he's doing during the day.
Choosing a care provider to help raise your child is a difficult and trying decision but La Petite Academy makes this decision effortless! I have loved them from day 1! My son initially had a difficult transition but staff members paid special attention to him and his needs and found creative ways to soothe and comfort him during that time. I have reassurance each day that my precious irreplaceable
baby is in excellent hands and it is such a relief. Thank you for the excellent job you all do in caring for such precious cargo.
