Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Plus, for elementary school students, The Prep Lab offers distance learning support, STEM projects, and more, on a flexible schedule—including a full-day option.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Towson, MD! Our school is located on the campus of Greater Baltimore Medical Center in the heart of Towson. We are just minutes away from Towson University, downtown Towson, and the hospitals in the Towson area.

My name is Emily and I am the Academy Director. I have worked in the early childhood field since 1997 and have held a management position since 2004.

Our school - including daycare for Infants, Preschool programs and more - is nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation. We opened in 1989 and have many long-tenured teachers who create a true family environment. All of our staff have over 150 years of experience!

We know that health and safety during these unprecedented times are on everyone's minds. At our center, we are following all guidelines in place from the CDC as well as Baltimore County Health Department to ensure our school is as safe and healthy as possible. We check the children and staff temperatures prior to entering the building, toys are sanitized throughout the day, and everyone in our building are hand washing experts! We also limit who comes in the building throughout the day, and we provide wellness checks for all children and staff.

As we move into the new school year, many School-Age children will be doing more virtual learning in place of attending school. We know that working and juggling distance learning can be a lot. We are here to help. We will be rolling out our Prep Lab program (as space allows) to assist with School-Age children. Prep Lab will support school-age with the distance learning that their elementary school is assigning them. Prep Lab will be for children ages 5-12 years old.

We'll also be launching WatchMeGrow live-streaming camera access for our families to get a glimpse of their child's classroom on their smart devices.

Please give us a call so we can assist you with your child care needs.

Overall my family has had a great experience. The teachers are friendly, loving and caring. My child seems very happy.
Really great. We LOVE the director, assistant director and teachers
Very caring Teachers with tremendous patience. They know our kids and care about them.
I absolutely love the school director, Ms. Emily. She was one of the main reasons we chose the school in addition to its location and school size. Ms. Emily is caring, knowledgeable and confident in the product that LaPetite Academy offers its students and families. I hope that she and all the teachers receive competitive salaries for the high quality care they provide the children there. To be able
to trust your child to strangers and feel like they treat your him/her like family is priceless.
