Welcome! My name is Natale and I am the director at La Petite Academy in Port St Lucie, FL. I have been with La Petite for more than 18 years and have my associate’s degree in early childhood education. I enjoy interacting with our families and seeing their children grow and develop through our Infant Care, Preschool and other early education programs!
We offer unique education programs that tailor to the development of the children such as Active Infants Safe Spaces, STEM based Preschool Curriculum, Florida VPK and even a Prep Lab for school age children to support their academic journey. Our teachers create learning experiences based on their own observations and assessments of the children, to provide unique, customized lesson plans.
My staff and I are educators because we want to be and La Petite is where we want to teach. We all participate in ongoing training. Most of our staff has been with our company for five or more years.
We encourage parents to be involved here and our WatchMeGrow video program allows families the convenience of being able to view their children’s activities in our classrooms in real time, at any time, on their computer, phone or tablet, with secured access for additional peace of mind. Our staff also maintains close relationships with families and love to keep you updated using the brightwheel app where they have the ability to quickly share pictures, learning milestones and daily communication straight to your phone.
Safety and security is always at the forefront of our school. All parents have a secure log in code to enter the building and check in their child to our computer system. We have implemented safety procedures that will help maintain a healthy environment for all including temperature checks, staff wearing masks and frequent hand washing.
