Welcome to La Petite Academy in Riverside! My name is Wendy and I'm the academy director. I have been in the early child development field for 23 years and I have taught everything from Infants to Private Kindergarten.
La Petite Academy offers a loving and nurturing Toddler, Twos, Preschool and Pre-K programs. We also provide Before- and After-School care for school-age children.

Families continue to return with sibling because of our experienced teachers. All teachers are CPR and first aid certified to maintain your children's heath and safety.
