Each of our schools is licensed by the state where it operates. In addition, each adheres to the highest standards of safety, security, cleanliness, teaching, and loving care. Every Academy operates the way any good neighborhood business does. We know our community and we understand how best to serve the parents and children who live there.

Along the way, we have become widely recognized for our innovation, leadership, and reputation for excellence in early education. As a pioneer in education-based care, La Petite Academy is matched by very few organizations for the perspective and insight we’ve achieved.
