Supporting Our Community

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Tampa, FL! My name is Amanda and I am the center director. I have been with La Petite for several years as both a teacher and manager. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a Level I Florida Director's Credential.

This school here in Tampa has been open since 1988. We currently have six former students who now bring their own children here! In addition to providing superior infant care, our preschool options offer the best early education in the community.

Our school is nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation. This accreditation also awards us a Gold Seal title with our county's Department of Childcare Licensing. We have an outstanding staff with a combined 150 years of experience in early childhood education. They all receive monthly training as well as ongoing training by the state.

In light of recent event such as COVID-19, we have increased our safety procedures. Temperature checks are conducted on every student and staff member who enters the facility. Masks are required at all times for staff members and families are asked to remain outside of the building during drop off and pick up to ensure we have the safest environment for our children. We have increased our already rigorous clearing schedule and added a dedicated housekeeper to ensure everything is disinfected and sanitized. We know how important it is for our families to stay connected with their child's school so we are introducing WatchMeGrow, a live camera streaming service. You can feel connected your child from anywhere. For our school age children, we have developed a program called Prep Lab that helps to curb the "summer slide", ensuring they are ready for the upcoming school year. Workbooks have been designed for each grade level and themed to match our Camp Innovate. We look forward to welcoming you into our family!

This school is amazing! The Director and teachers are excellent. My children feel loved every day. It is a very safe environment.
The whole school is amazing, the teachers, the director they are all so valuable in my baby boys development! He loves going to school and he's only 11 months.
All good things! Every step of the way!
Everyone has been amazing with my child’s transition from moving from a different state. She had a very challenging transition and the staff at this school went above and beyond to help her transition in a positive way. She is now happier and growing well beyond my expectations! I cannot thank this team enough for what they have done for my daughter!
I absolutely love the staff and they seem to truly care, nurture and encourage my son in the best possible ways.
