Welcome to La Petite Academy in Port Orange, Florida. My name is Sahlee and I am the director of this great school. I have been in the early childhood field for over 10 years. If you are looking for a high-quality learning center for Infant Care, Preschool and VPK programs, then you have come to the right place.
Our teachers are well trained in CPR and First Aid and are committed to building upon their knowledge through ongoing training in the early childhood field.
We strive to create a warm and welcoming environment. When you enroll at our center, you become part of our family! Our goal is to provide a stimulating environment to create meaningful experiences for your child every day.
Health and Safety:
In this challenging, uncertain time, we recognize the strain the current climate creates for families. We remain committed to doing everything possible to support our community. That starts with a healthy, safe environment for your child when they're away from home. Our current health and safety practices include: protective masks worn by all teachers, temperature and wellness checks, and enhanced health practices. We've strengthened our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices (including more frequent, longer hand washing; cleaning and sanitizing surfaces and items in classrooms). We have our brightwheel app, offering real-time updates on your child's day, and WatchMeGrow is coming soon to offer live streaming into your child's classroom.
What a great place to start, right here at La Petite Academy educational daycare in Port Orange!
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

As the academy director, I am passionate about providing a safe, loving and nurturing environment. I have been in the early childhood field for over 19 years. Often, you can catch me at the beach reading a book or just relaxing with my family and my dog.
