Welcome to Our School

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in San Diego, CA! My name is Chrissie and I am the school director. I have 15 years of experience in child care and I have had the honor of working at this La Petite Academy location for seven years.

Our infant care, preschool programs and junior kindergarten class provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. A loving, nurturing and safe environment is maintained throughout our school and is made evident by our securely locked doors and sign-in process.

Our team of dedicated teachers provide loving care while keeping each child engaged in fun and exciting learning opportunities. You will be able to see evidence of their learning opportunities every day through our mobile app. Collectively, our teachers have experience ranging from one year to 24 years, are first aid/CPR certified, and receive ongoing training through the year.

I am confident that a tour of our La Petite Academy in San Diego, CA will show you why we are the right center for your child. Call to schedule your tour today!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
La Petite has been wonderful since day one. The director and all the teachers are always so warm and welcoming. They show genuine care for each child. It is such a fun and engaging environment for my son. He loves going to “school” every day. They have the perfect balance of learning and play time. I have zero complaints. Love La Petite!!
Fantastic staff, programs, offerings, and atmosphere.
Love the staff. And more importantly, so does my son.
Our child has been with La Petite since she was 5 months old. She has flourished and thrived ever since. Every teacher has played a special role in her development and growth. We are grateful for this experience.
We’ve had a very positive experience with both our children here. The teachers are wonderful as is the director!
this location of La Petite is incredible. It starts from the best director in the business - Chrissie. We love her as well as all the teachers. we couldn't be more happy. We would never consider putting both our kids in another program because it couldn't be better anywhere else. we have loved the experience the entire time. thank you!
We love La Petite. The teachers are great and Chrissie is a wonderful director. My kids thrive at this school.
I absolutely love La Petite Carmel Mountain. The entire staff makes my family feel welcome, cared about and loved. I feel like the staff is an extension of my own family and I know they truly care about the well being of my child. The curriculum is fantastic, creative and challenging for my daughter. It has prepared my older daughter extremely well for Kindergarten and I know it’s preparing my current
pre-schooler for success too. I cant imagine a better place to which to send my children.

The La Petite in Carmel Mountain Road, San Diego is an outstanding school. The teachers, the director, the cook, the facility--everything is above and beyond expectations.My granddaughter has literally been nurtured and has been given the best education and the best opportunity for social development by all the staff members. Our family always feels welcomed by all the teachers and the director. Every
teacher my granddaughter has had--Ms. anna, Ms. Marjan, Ms. heather and now Ms. Barbara are all kind, caring, compassionate role models for my granddaughter. the director Chrissy Schraff and Assistant director Christen Cobb set a positive tone. Every person mentioned and al other staff members are very sincere and professional. We consider the staff at this location to be our extended family. I rate them an A+ and give them 5 stars.
