Welcome to La Petite Academy in San Antonio, TX, located at Babcock and Eckhert near the Medical Center and minutes away from USAA.
Our academy has been established for over 30 years. We are accredited through the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (NECPA) and are a Texas Rising Star school. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children to learn and grow. We offer Infant care, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Before- And After-School care.
Our teachers and staff take great pride in providing children with exceptional care and an education that will excite them about learning. Staff members take place in training opportunities throughout the year.
To accommodate our working parents needs we are following CDC guidelines for COVID-19. We are taking protective measure with staff wearing face coverings, taking temperature, and hand washing upon entering the building. All parents and guardians must wear a face covering when dropping off and picking up children. The use of face coverings is encouraged for school-age children, at the discretion of the parent or guardian. (Where required by law or licensing, children 10 & up must also wear masks.)
Supporting our community means not just preparing young children to be ready for elementary school, but also to help keep learning on track when they are school-age students. In addition to our before- and after-school clubs for ages 5 to 12, The Prep Lab™ offers flexible scheduling, including a new full-day option, and distance learning support, based on your local school district’s plans. We also provide transportation for our families with school-age children to Frances Rhodes Elementary, McDermott Elementary, Brookes Oaks Academy, and Carnanhan Elementary.
Please call and schedule a virtual tour of our school today, we would love to meet your family!
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 creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More

My name is Margaret Toscano, I enjoy working with children and especially, laughing and watching the children enjoy their childhood and school experience. I am also excited to bring many enrichment activities into the program including art, baking, and song and dance. I love teaching because I can impact children’s lives and watch them grow and learn. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends and I love reading, listening to music, and taking my dog woody out for walks.
