Welcome to Our School

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.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

Call today to schedule your tour! We cannot wait to meet you!
