Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Summerville, SC! My name is Cindy Kunkel and I have been with La Petite since 1996. I love working with children and enjoy building relationships with each family.

Watching the children learn and grow in our Infant Care and Preschool programs has been very rewarding for me. It is an amazing feeling to hear about the successes of children who have gone through our early education programs.

When a family joins La Petite Academy here in Summerville, they join our family. My staff and I are committed to the highest standards in care and education. We have an experienced staff with over 100 years of combined service to our children.

Safety is a top priority; our facility is equipped with a front-door keypad entry system. We also have alerts on doors that inform us when a door has been opened.
