Welcome! My name is Matty and I am the School Director at this incredible La Petite Academy educational daycare and preschool in Redmond, WA. I have an AA degree in liberal studies with an emphasis in ECE, as well as 24 years of experience in the field of education. Pulling from my background, I am confident that our school offers the best Infant Care and Preschool programs in Redmond!
Our staff here in Redmond meet all licensing requirements for education and safety protocol and they participate in annual training specific for their age group. Our classroom teachers are challenged to provide an enriched curriculum that reaches all children.
In our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms, children have iPads with educational apps, as well as soft shapes and letters that interact with the touchscreens. Plus, our Preschool class has an Inspire Plus interactive table and our Pre-K class features a STEM Lab with hands-on learning experiences in STEM. For school-agers, we have tripods for movie making, robots for coding, a new gaming system, and more!
Plus, this fall The Prep Lab supports school-age students and their families as they face any challenges and changes in their local school district this upcoming school year, with flexible scheduling and even a full-day option. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies.
In order to better serve you, I'm excited to share that this fall, our school will offer WatchMeGrow, live video streaming!
We’re closely following guidance from the CDC and state and local health departments and taking extreme care to maintain a clean and healthy school environment. We are promoting cleanliness and good hygiene with the children and our staff – frequent hand washing and cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and items in our classrooms. Along with our detailed hygiene, cleaning and sanitation protocols, we conduct wellness checks throughout the day, so that if we detect any potential sign of illness we can respond appropriately.
I invite you to schedule a tour and learn all the things La Petite Academy in Redmond, WA so special!

I am originally from Los Angeles, CA and moved to Seattle 11 years ago! I've been married to my husband, Jason for 10 years and have a nine year old daughter named, Jenna. Our family would not be complete without our pets; we have a chihuahua named, Bailey and our cat, Regie. I love The Dodgers, shopping, cooking and spending time with family and friends. I am currently pursuing a degree in the field of Early Childhood Education and expect to complete it by fall 2021!
Certifications: 30 Hours STARS, First Aid & CPR, Food Handler's Permit and Bloodborne Pathogens
I've been working in childcare for approximately four years, and I've discovered that I love being able to teach and help young children. Some of my favorite things to do are spend time with family, bake, and read. I recently married my high school sweetheart, Mauricio, and although, we don't have any children yet, we do share our sweet, three year old cat, Presley!
