Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in St. Augustine, FL. My name is Kelsey and I am the school acting director. I have a passion for working alongside families and staff to create an atmosphere where children thrive.

Our school provides care for children six weeks to 11 years old through our Infant Care, Preschool and other age-specific programs. Each classroom is appropriate for its age level and has a curriculum geared towards the children's developmental needs.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
