Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Tampa, FL! My name is Disney Hernandez and I am the academy director. I have been with La Petite since 2007. I have more than 10 years experience in early learning education.

Our school provides educational options and choices for children of every age and stage through our infant care, preschool and before- and after-school program. Our teachers help make each child's learning experience fun and enjoyable every day. This center is accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation.

I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for our families. We plan a lot of events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure that families meet each other and develop strong relationships, as well.

We have an outstanding staff that is dedicated to our children and families here in Tampa. Our teachers have more than 10 years of teaching experience. All of our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the state.
