Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Sarasota, FL. My name is Jennifer and I am the academy director. I have been in this field for over 10 years and I have been a director almost seven years now. I have my bachelor's degree in early childhood development and leadership and am currently working to finish my masters's degree.

In our center, we offer care for children six weeks to 12 years. Our classrooms consist of infants, toddlers, twos, early preschool, preschool, VPK, and school age. We offer transportation to schools in the area; please contact us for more information.

Our teachers are the heart and soul of our school. All of our staff is certified in CPR/first aid. We all do monthly training and also participate in an annual Professional Development Day. Continuing education and knowledge of best practices is key to our teachers' continued success as being a key role model for children!

We invite you to tour our La Petite Academy in Sarasota, FL. Bring your child and participate in an activity to see why we are leaders in early childhood education. Hope to see you soon!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
My son has only been at this school for a month now, but so far we enjoy it and so does he. Every time he attends we get multiples photos of him throughout the day which is always reassuring for us as parents. But this was incredibly helpful and reassuring the first few times he attended. He always seems to enjoy himself while at school and is regularly loving on a teacher when I pick him up. Couldn’t
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

Very happy with my decision. Melissa and Tahya are amazing and everyone of the caretakers there are just the best. My son loves it there and I can tell they genuinely love him.
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.
