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 15 years’ experience in early learning education. During these difficult times, I am committed to help maintain a Safe, Secure and Healthy environment for children, families and staff.

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 and support the student learning distance needs. This center is accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation.

We are excited to share that by the end of the year 2020 our school will be offering WatchMeGrow live video streaming. WatchMeGrow will give our families a secure access to view their child’s classroom in real time while they are under our care.

I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for our families. We have an outstanding staff that is dedicated to our children and families here in Tampa. We have taken some significant steps to upgrade our school to ensure that our children have the most up-to-date and engaging learning environment. We've also upgraded our health and safety procedures with procedures such as temperature checks and curbside drop-off, and we've upgraded our School-Age program to include Prep Lab. Prep Lab supports distance learning and makes sure school-agers stay on track despite any missed educational time from the pandemic.
