Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome! My name is Johanna and I am the director and La Petite Academy in Port Saint Lucie - Saint Lucie West. I have been with La Petite since 2014 and in the early childhood education industry since 2002. Quality childcare is my ultimate goal and I strive daily to provide a successful program for you and your child.

We offer unique education programs that tailor to the development of the children such as Active Infants Safe Spaces, STEM based Preschool Curriculum and Florida VPK.

My staff and I participate in ongoing training to further our knowledge, and a majority of our staff have college degrees. Our classrooms are spacious, clean and decorated by the children to bring character and a feeling of home into the school.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

We would love to show you everything we have to offer at La Petite Academy in Port St Lucie, FL, so call to schedule a tour today!
