Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Washington, D.C.! My name is Kaylee and I am the academy director. My job gives me the opportunity to implement an educational environment, accredited through NAEYC, for the children and also allows me to help staff reach higher levels of education.

Communication is important to us and we stay connected to our families in many ways, including through our Family Communication App and Live Streaming Video. We are excited to introduce our free Live Streaming Video which will allow families to view their child's classroom and activities at any time with secure access. We are committed to having families be engaged and an active part of their child's education and look forward to growing together!

Our top priority is children's health and safety, which we feel is more important now than ever. We have implemented daily health screenings, including temperature checks for all staff and children upon arrival each day, as well as monitoring for any illness during the day. All staff and parents are required to wear masks while they are either in the school or during drop-off and pick-up. We have also implemented a front door drop-off and pick-up policy for all families in order to limit the number of people in the building throughout the day. All of our classrooms are limited to ten people per room, eight children and two adults. Our staff remain vigilant in hand-washing procedures as well as the cleaning of toys, equipment, and high-touch surfaces throughout the day.

Working together, we can make a difference in our children's lives. I've found that each one of our families brings something rewarding to the table, every day. I invite you to come in for a tour and discover what make La Petite Academy the best choice for early childhood education in Washington, D.C.!

Here's what people have to say

4.9 out of 5 stars
We absolutely love La Petite. The daily updates through the app are wonderful and the teachers do such a good job. Our child absolutely loves LPA as well- excited to go each morning and so happy to tell us about her days, which to us means it is a wonderful place.
I am so grateful for La Petite Academy. The teachers are fantastic, and my children have continued to develop, learn and have fun even during the pandemic. Heroes truly work at LPA in DC.
We are very happy that we chose La Petite Academy--the teachers show genuine love and care for our daughter and she has developed so much faster than when I had her home with me full-time.
The teachers are lovely and excellent in the Toddler 2 classroom. Ms Kammy and Ms Tashinee are great. They show their love and care for the kids and their compassion is outstanding. I appreciate them
We are very pleased with La Petite Academy. Our daughter is very happy there and we really appreciate the transparency and communication that the academy provides, especially during this pandemic.
My experience has been very positive thus far with teachers, staff and the director. The environment is very caring and nurturing.
La Petite Academy has been great for my daughter. She loves her teachers and we feel very safe with her there. They have also been very helpful in coming up with strategies to make sure she remains healthy and moving forward to new milestones.
We are grateful for a place where our daughter can learn from her teachers and classmates alike in a safe and comfortable place. We are also thankful for the relationship she has built with Ms Evette and Ms Meko, who have been such a big part of her development.
Our general experience has been extremely positive. Loving teachers, caring administrators and a warm and welcoming environment.
I could not be happier with the growth of my 2 year old at this school. She learns new things every week, and I can see them teaching her skills which she will carry forever.
