Welcome to La Petite Academy in Saugus, CA! My name is Samantha and I am the academy director. I have my Associate of Arts degree in liberal arts highlighting elementary education, a B.A. in liberal studies with a minor in early childhood administration and a master's degree in family studies with emphasis in nutrition and special education. I have been working with children for 12 years!
We offer Infant Care, Preschool, School-Age programs and more. Each program is designed to provide a comfortable, safe, and healthy environment where children can learn and grow. We believe that children learn best through guided exploration and our curriculum focuses on the importance of viewing each child as an individual.
All of our teachers have at least 12 units of childhood education and are First Aid/CPR certified. Most staff members have degrees, and all have multiple years of experience.
I believe that once you visit us, you will know you have found the perfect school for your family. Call or stop by to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Saugus, CA today!
