Welcome to Our School

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Tampa, FL! My name is Kimberly Sewell and I am the director. I started with La Petite Academy in 1995 and have my A.A. degree as well as 25 years of experience as a teacher and manager.

Our academy, which was established in 1986, provides both infant care and preschool programs and is deeply rooted in our community. We are accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation, which means that the standards we follow are higher than the State of Florida's Child Daycare Licensing Standards.

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

We have an outstanding staff that is dedicated to our children and families. Most of our teachers have more than 10 years of teaching experience.

Schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy in Tampa, FL today! We look forward to meeting you!

Here's what people have to say

4.9 out of 5 stars
La Petite at Regents is absolutely amazing. You feel the warm welcome from the moment you walk in the door. Starting with the friendly and helpful management team, to the communicative staff. My children love coming here.
The school is very clean free of germs. Teachers are well qualified.My child has improved so much by attending this academy
They are good and responsible. My son like going to school every morning.
I have had a wonderful experience with La Petite. My son has been enrolled since he was 3 months old and he loves it there. They do an amazing infant curriculum with frequent outside playtime, art crafts and development. The caregivers in the infant room look after him like a mother would with lots of positive reinforcement and affection. He is so happy when we get to school and he sees all his friends!

We love sending our daughter to LPA because the teachers are wonderful (Ms Dawn, Ms Joann, and Ms Nancy) and the Director and Assistant Director are extremely nice! Everyone goes above and beyond for your child and you just know that you’re child is in good hands after you leave.
I love the staff here at La petite. I was always afraid to bring my son to a day care but taking him here was the best choice! They have an app that updates you on things your child does throughout the day. They are understanding and handle issues appropriately.
The teachers (Ms Nancy, Ms Dawn, and Ms Joann) are amazing. I feel good about my daughter being with anyone one of them the for the entire day because I can tell that they absolutely love my child and want her to succeed... I just wish there was a way where the parent can get a monthly progress report on their child so that they know what areas to develop and what areas to work on when they pick up
their child... But overall, I can tell that the place is safe, there’s structure, it’s clean, and my daughter’s teachers love my child as if she was their own..

We have struggled to find a good daycare. This is the first time that I actually feel comfortable with where my kids are. The teachers and staff are top notch. My kids love it!! And I finally have peace of mind with their school.
Been a great experience I love the teachers especially and the entire staff
Love the teachers like family.. and how they care and love my son like he is their own. I am impressed with the curriculum for infants and how engaged they are with the babies. Love our La Petite.
