Welcome to La Petite Academy, an educational Preschool and daycare on the Northeast side of San Antonio, TX! My name is Chelsea and I am the Academy Director and I have worked for La Petite since 2013; at our Judson location since 2018. La Petite Academy has been licensed and serving the North East Judson & 1604 surrounding communities since 1986.
Our school offers Infant and Toddler care, Preschool, Pre-K and other early education programs up to 12 years old. We proudly participate in the Pre-K for SA Program. We hold a National Early Childhood Program Accreditation through NECPA also a 4 star Texas Rising Star State Accreditation.
We are excited to offer technology in our School-Age classroom including iPads featuring apps to create art, music, videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding, gaming systems and a secure WiFi network for homework. In addition to our before- and after-school clubs, we will offer The Prep Lab, and full day options for our school age students. Teachers will support your child's distance learning requirements. We also offer premium diapers and wipes, and live stream video & daily photos viewed from a mobile app.
We also have state-of-the-art security features to ensure the safety of your child. We serve the NEISD school districts and currently pick up at Steubing Ranch, Rolling Meadows, Stahl, Longs Creek and Fox Run. We also have a summer camp available for our school-age students.
Health and safety are essential to me, and at our school, they come first. We are currently following guidance from the CDC, as well as our state and local officials and health authorities. All staff are wearing masks, we take temperatures and do health checks for everyone at arrival, only our children, staff, and authorities may enter the building. We serve pre-plated meals in each classroom, and we have strengthened our already thorough cleaning and hygiene practices.
Please call us to schedule your virtual tour of our La Petite Academy!
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

My passion for working with children started at an early age. Professionally, I have been working in the ECE field for 14 years. I love seeing the children's faces each morning and hearing their greetings met with loving hugs. Assisting families in their child's educational journey is my daily goal. Watching the the children grow and learn is a privilege I am so grateful for.

Certifications: Child Care Administrators Credential and Director Credential
My love of working with children began at 13 by volunteering with the American Red Cross and babysitting. I moved to Texas in 2010 and began my career in Early Childhood Education. I worked for a small facility before beginning my career with La Petite Academy in 2013 at our Schertz, TX location and then our Judson location March of 2020.
I began my career in Childcare in 1997 when I decided to open and operate my own State Registered Childcare facility. I have knowledge and experience working with all age groups, but find my favorite age would be the two’s. I chose this field because I enjoy teaching and guiding children, learning more through them as well. I do not have children of my own so these children are my children and I look forward to helping them grow and succeed during these early milestones.
