Welcome to La Petite Academy of Portsmouth. My name is Kacie and I am the Center Director. Here at our school, we offer a comprehensive curriculum for ages Infants through School-Age. Our curriculum is designed to address the whole child and promote growth and learning in every area of development. All of our staff are First Aid and CPR certified, and together we have over 75 years of teaching experience!
We have grown accustom to the new normal that has been brought forward by the impact of COVID-19. We are focused on the health and safety of not only the children we teach, but their families, and our staff. Our health and safety procedures begin at the front door. We conduct daily health screenings and temperature checks upon entry. We also require the use of face masks by all staff and adults entering our building. We have also increased our already in-depth cleaning and sanitizing procedures to safeguard our children, families and staff. We are confident in our health and safety practices and know that we do our best to keep our children, their families and our staff safe and healthy!
We know that safety is always a top priority for our families, and this why we use WatchMeGrow live-streaming service to keep you connected with your child throughout the day. These cameras allow us to view all areas of the building, as well as give you access to your child’s classroom throughout the day. By using the WatchMeGrow mobile app or their website, you can have peace of mind that your child’s education is being fostered in a fun, nurturing, and safe environment.
As we continue to evolve to the ever changing new world of education, we are supporting our local school districts with our Prep Lab program. We allow the use of electronic devices from home and offer guidance to students working on online assignments and class meetings.

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
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

Dance, Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math

I have had experience in child care management since 2012, recently joining the La Petite family this year. I am so excited to be joining such a wonderful team of dedicated teachers. My life is so much better when children are around and I love being able to see their smiles everyday!

I am so grateful to have a career spanning 25 years in this dynamic and constantly expanding field. I have found a home at La Petite that believes so strongly in developing the whole child. In my off time, you will find me spending time with my family, reading and enjoying the outdoors.
