Welcome to Our School

Our La Petite on Humphrey Street has a great staff dedicated to the individuality of every child. We educate Infants, Toddlers and Two's. We inspire our early Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and VPK classes. We also encourage discovery in our Before- and After- School-Age program and our winter break, spring break and summer camps. We aspire to challenge young minds to re-imagine a bright future for us all.

We encourage parent involvement by asking for guest readers and have many family events throughout the year (‘Trunk or Treating’, Winter Gala, Spring Fling).

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Come join in on the fun and be a part of our La Petite family! Call today to schedule a tour.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
I personally love my school my daughters teacher is the best. She knows how to talk to my daughter and get her to calm down if she is upset. My daughter absolutely loves her teacher

Seeing my daughter being so happy to attend to school everyday and sharing with us something new she has learned each day, it makes us feel great to have chosen the right school for her VPK program.

I’ve seen progress in my daughters speech and social development in the past six months and is the main reason we enrolled her since she’s an only child. The location is great for us too and I like the staff a lot. The Halloween party was fun as well!

I chose this school because of the atmosphere as well as the director Ms. Melinda. The brightwheel app is a way to stay in tune with your childs day, even when you're not there. This was my sons first school setting and I am more than comfortable with La Petite. They make the decision easier than normal. My son has always been with family and smaller children within the family. He feels comfortable

with his teacher Ms. Tammy, he wouldn't even let her change his pull-up when he first started! He is now in underwear, in less than a month. They have helped with social skills as well as preparing him for the next phase in his education.

My son enjoys going to school every weekday and then telling me what he did on the car ride home. The teacher and other staff are great and my son has progressed so much, both mentally and socially. I’m very happy with our decision to have him attend this school for VPK. Thank you for all you do!!

Watching children's eyes light up when they make the connection and learn something new is why I love my job. Early on as a teacher, I could only see this in my students. Now as a Director, I get the privilege to help my teachers light up the whole school.
