Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Westerville, OH! My name is Abby and I am the academy director at our Valley Quail location. I have worked in early childhood education for the past 18 years and have a bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from The Ohio State University.
We offer educational based care for children as young as 6 weeks through 10 years old. Our goal is to provide families and children with a positive, fun, and professional environment that promotes community and a lifelong love of learning. Our infant care and preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development.
Ohio’s Step Up To Quality accreditation program has rated us as a FOUR star center. This means we go above and beyond state regulations to give our children the best start possible. With our STEM based curriculum, children are three times more ready for school! We also utilize the Ages and Stages Questionnaire screening program. This is an effective way to check your child’s development, celebrate milestones, know what to look for next and determine if follow-up steps are needed before your child starts school.
We have an outstanding staff dedicated to our children and families with over 50 years of combined experience! All of our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by the State of Ohio. This also includes enhanced training in health, safety, and cleaning protocols during these unprecedented times. Our first priority is the safety of our students, teachers and families.

Education: Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology from The Ohio State University
I received my Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology from The Ohio State University. I have been working in early childhood education for over 18 years, starting as a pre-kindergarten teacher. After two years of teaching, I moved into a management role.

In addition to having four of my own children and a grandson, I also ran an in-home daycare for six years prior to being hired as a teacher here at La Petite Academy in 2010. In 2018, I was promoted to team lead. I also have my Associate's Degree in Human Nutrition from CSCC.
