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 are excited to offer Prep Lab in our School-Age classroom. Our elementary aged children have an extension of learning here at La Petite with grade level workbooks to help bridge learning.
We are currently following CDC guidelines and strict cleaning protocol on a daily basis. All staff and families are required to wear masks and families. Upon arrival staff, children, and families have temperatures taken and are given wellness checks. Families are asked to remain in common areas and not enter classrooms in order to prevent the spread of germs in our classrooms. Although families may not enter classrooms, we are excited to announce that we will soon offer live streaming video for our families to view their child's classroom at their home or office.
Please call or visit our La Petite Academy in St. Augustine, FL to schedule a tour and see for yourself what a wonderful place this is for children.
