Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Sarasota, FL. We serve communities in Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, Sarasota, Ellenton, Palmetto, Parish, and Lakewood Ranch.

My name is Tehya and I am the Academy Director. I have more than 9 years of experience in early childhood education. I began my journey with La Petite Academy as an assistant director in March of 2018 and accepted the director position in April of 2019.

Our school includes Infant, Toddler and Twos, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Before and After-School Care for elementary age children. In all our programs we follow a STEM approach, providing hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We are nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation.

We have an open door policy for currently enrolled families and we welcome parents to come in and spend time with their children.

Our entire staff has first aid and CPR training, as well as 45 hour-mandated state training. The majority of our staff has completed their CDA certification and others are currently working on obtaining theirs.

We truly enjoy every day at our La Petite Academy in Sarasota, FL and invite you to come in for a tour! Please schedule your tour at our school today!

We have been so happy for the opportunities provided to our son as he learns and grows at school while we are at work during the day. The pictures the staff provided of the fun he’s having each day mean so much to us.

My daughter has been going to La Petite for about 7 months now. The staff is absolutely amazing and so caring! My daughter has learned so much from her teachers, and I love getting multiple updates daily about how/what she is doing. The staff is very welcoming and open to talk about every milestone your child is at. Hands down best childcare my daughter has been to!

ask for better than that. The teachers genuinely seem to love and care for my son which gives me a great peace of mind as he is there 8+ hours when he attends. Incredibly lucky to have found this daycare for my son. So far, my family is loving it

Everyone here is warm and welcoming. I feel very comfortable with my daughter being under their care while I am at work. Jennifer the director has been extremely accommodating for our family and sometimes my changing schedule. I am always greeted by a warm hello when dropping her off and in the afternoon a caring good bye. Thank you for taking care of my baby girl.
