Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare located in Bloomingdale Estates in Valrico, FL! My name is Anna Lugo and I am the Academy Director.
Our school offers loving Infant care, superior Preschool programs, phonics programs for our VPK students, and Prep Lab which is designed to keep School-Agers on course with their studies and is nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation. The standards we follow are higher than the State of Florida's Child Daycare Licensing Standards.
More than half of our teachers have been here for five years or more and have additional teaching experience prior to La Petite. The commitment to lifelong learning and safety of our children is the most important for us here at La Petite. We have added temperature and health checks upon arrival, as well as additional times for sanitizing equipment and toys, and more.
My staff and I create a warm and welcoming environment and with our new WatchMeGrow, live-streaming camera access, available for families that will be accessible by Fall 2020. We plan a lot of events for everyone to participate in and I work hard to ensure our families meet each other and develop strong relationships, as well.

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
