Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Plus, for elementary school students, The Prep Lab offers distance learning support, STEM projects, and more, on a flexible schedule—including a full-day option.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in San Diego, CA! My name is Jamie and I am the school director. We offer Infant and Toddler care, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs. I have an Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood education, as well as over 23 years of experience as a teacher and manager. I take great pride not only in the education, but also in the loving environment that we provide for the children in the San Diego community.

We have an outstanding staff here in Sabre Springs/Poway that is dedicated to our children and families. I am proud to say that our teachers have more than 215 years of combined experience! Additionally, all of our teachers receive monthly training and are supported by our company to continue their education.

We have put into place extra safety protocols in order to keep our children and families safe. Some of these are all staff members wear face mask throughout their day at work, parent/guardians wear face mask upon drop off and pick up, taking temperatures of everyone that comes into our building and increasing the sanitation in the classrooms.

We are excited to launch soon the new WatchMeGrow program. WatchMeGrow gives families the opportunity to view their child's activities in their classroom in real time through secured access on your computer, phone, or tablet. Never miss a moment away from your child again.

Come visit us and see for yourself what a loving, dedicated environment we can offer at our La Petite Academy educational daycare in San Diego, CA.

Great experience. Love the staff!
I am very happy with La Petite caring for my daughter and son. We have been coming here for more than 6 years now and will continue to do so.
I would and have highly recommend this school to my friends. Teachers treat the kids like family.
The teachers' ability to apply the curriculum is one of the primary reasons children thrive at this school. As a parent, peace of mind is priceless. We love this school!!!
We just love this school. Teachers are warm, kind, friendly. I have recommend all my friends here and they have joined the school too. I am very pleased that my child goes here. Ms. Jamie is really a cherry on top. If I have another child I already know where he/she will be going.
I have been very happy with this school's educational curriculum and feel that my child has been well prepared to enter kindergarten in the next school year.
I like that my chuld’s teachers love and care about him.
Great experience. We are very happy
Great staff and love the education
We are so happy and thrilled to have our son enrolled here. Our only regret is waiting so long to move him to this academy. He has only been in this preschool for a couple months and we have seen tremendous improvements. The Director and her staff/teachers are fantastic! Everyone is friendly, professional, dedicated, and experienced! Our son is super excited to go to preschool every day and we love
getting pictures of him and updates throughout the day. We highly recommend La Petite Academy.
