Love La Petite! The teachers and staff take great care of my kiddo!
Verified Shopper
It has been pleasant and accommodating. It fills the needs of myself and my child to a T at this point in our lives.
Verified Shopper
I love that my children have a relationship with all of the teachers and staff, even when my children are not in their classes. My children and I have always felt welcomed at this school, and the education they receive is fantastic - my daughter comes home with something new to share almost every day!
Verified Shopper
Awesome! We love our safe, welcoming school and the teachers who really care about our daughter!
Verified Shopper
We have enjoyed sending our boys here this past year. My 3 year old comes home telling us how much fun he’s had for the day. We love the Flex Care. My husband’s schedule is not consistent, and it’s the only place around that can accommodate it!
Verified Shopper
This is my first time sending my kid off to be with strangers. The overall experience was wonderful. Everyone is always nice and concerned. Thanks for that.

Providing a safe place for children to grow, learn, and discover has always been a passion of mine. Children are constantly learning and developing every day, and it gives me great joy to be a part of this milestone in your child's life. I started teaching in 2013 and immediately fell in love with the endless ways you can captivate a child and expand their learning through play, conversations, and showing up every day, putting your best foot forward.

Amber Shepherd, Associate Director

Education: Currently pursuing a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education

Certifications: CPR/First Aid, SIDS, Playground Safety, BSAC

I began my journey with children at a young age as I welcomed siblings a decade after my birth. From there, I transitioned into the hospitality industry until I became a parent. Since becoming a parent, I have run in-home childcare settings in two states and ultimately decided to return to school to further my education in early childhood and join the childcare center workforce. Learning how a child's mind works and laying the foundation for their journey of growth lights up my world.
