Worst school, I kept my son here when he was 3 for one year, he was not hardly about to speak, one day my son did potty accidentally the teachers scared him in such a way, that he loose his confidence to speak out! Worst!

We started sending our 18 month old to La Petite on Church Rd a few months ago and could not be happier with how easy the transition was! We have noticed so many skills our son has learned in the toddler room- learning new words, hand signing, much better at using utensils, etc. Everytime I pick him up he seems to be having so much fun. Staff are very responsive with emails, flexible to our schedule, and accommodating. We’ve had a great experience so far!

La Petite Academy has been a godsend for our five year old daughter. In the last year they taught her to read and she is going into kindergarten this fall as a confident, ready to learn, happy little girl. I credit Ms. Toni with most of this and I cant thank all of the team at La Petite enough.

Our kids have gone to La Petite for years now and weve never thought about going anywhere else! The directors are the best and the place has a great homey feel. All the teachers and staff make a great effort to keep everyone safe and clean, and there is always good communication with the parents. In the few times we have had very minor issues, things were addressed very quickly. I never have any worry or concern about their care or safety, which is the most important thing. Im glad to have found La Petite on Church Road!

My daughter has attended this school for almost 2 years. There is a positive vibe to this place. Every single time, I have been greeted in the same enthusiastic way as my first visit. My daughters teachers have been very involved in her care and development, and have shown genuine concern in her difficult phases. I really appreciate their commitment. I appreciate the amount of work and energy the staff puts in to make this place the way it is. Flex option was great too and I initially had it for a few months. I sure have seen better looking day care centers and preschools in this area but the staff here is amazing and I think thats what matters the most to me.

We love La Petite! The teachers and activites are great. My daughter enjoys the themes of the week. Last week was space and they created astronaut helmets and visited space to learn about the planets. They send pictures, updates and sometimes videos throughout the day. I love that because it gives me a chance to ask specifics about her day, otherwise I would just get i had a good day. Ashley the Director is the best, she is always smiling and friendly!

Our daughter has been going to La Petite on Church Rd. for almost 3 years and she loves it. Our son will start this November. Our daughter loves her teachers and all of her friends. The teachers/directors are fantastic. They care so much for all of the kids. My daughter has grown and learned so much from La Petite. My husband and I are so grateful.

Ive had two kids there starting at 2-3s and now are in after school care. They have a great, caring team that nurtures and greatly compliments the kids learning and development at school and at home. Importantly, they are flexible with schedules, which really helps for folks that have jobs and lives with varying schedules.

I cant speak more highly of La Petite! All the teachers are amazing. I had no hesitation dropping my 5-month old son off on his first day.Hes now 14 months and I am still as happy as ever with the staff at this location. Everyone (including the directors) take a huge personal interest in every kid there. Rooms are meticulously cleaned, the children are well cared for and I can see every day the results of the teaching and exploration that goes on at La Petite.My husband and I happily take on a 40 minute round-trip commute just to keep our son at this location. I tell every new and future parent that they should enroll their child here!

We have been so pleased with our experience at La Petite on Church Rd. We have a Pre-K learner as well as an older child who participates in after-school care. Both love going and usually dont want to leave when its time to head home. We love all the staff, and have had positive interactions with all. We are so glad to be part of the La Petite family!

Review №11

We enrolled our toddler in the Flex Care program. Ashley and all the great folks at La Petite only see our son for a day or two every couple of months when conferences or trips make his regular day-care not an option. Each time he goes, they treat him like he has been there everyday and make us feel very comfortable sending him. Flex Care at La Petite has been a true blessing for our family.

I highly recommend LPA on church road. I had my two kids there and both were in good hands. It is a very loving, welcoming and safe environment. My son was hard to deal with yet his teachers embraced him and loved him soo much. My daughter enjoyed the summer camp program and always asked me to pick her up late to spend more time there. A Shout out to Ms. Ashley, Ms. Kellie, Ms. Destiny and Ms. Gayle!

I love La petite because in the school age room every one is nice . The teachers help with homework and they say funny jokes , and cool stuff for us to do. I LOVE LA PETITE!

Review №14

Both of my kids have been through the pre-school stages to the after school programs and have loved it. Both were beyond ready to start kindergarten when the time arrived. Couldnt have asked for more.

Review №15

Hi, I had my daughter at La petite because it was very convenient to me and I knew they had been around for some time. This was a bad decision. My daughter was in the 3 year old class and beware they pack those kids in the classroom like sardines.(VERY OVERCROWDED). There other problem that was a huge concern was my daughter was able to run completely out the building and into the parking lot because there isnt anything to safety keep my daughter in her assigned area. The building is very old and outdated and there is much better options then this very OVER PRICED daycare.

Our daughter is enrolled for the second year in a row in Summer Camp at La Petite Academy on Church Road. Just as last year its a great program conducted by a great staff of dedicated people.The staff is responsive and the teachers/instructors are truly caring about the needs of all the kids. - Thanks and : Continue the good Work!

I looked around at several Academys in the Short Pump Area, and didnt love any like La Petite. When you walked in it was bright, warm, & inviting. My son completed his trial day and loved every minute of it! I love the monthly newsletters, Activities, Parents Night Out events, & the great educational advances my son has made in the short time he has attended. I couldnt recommend LPA to more people.

Review №18

The director and assistant director of La Petite are TOP NOTCH! We are so appreciative of the love and care they show our children. One of our sons is currently in the Pre-K class and has such a committed and loving teacher. Today, when I came to pick him up, he was at play with friends in outer space - an awesome corner of the room the teacher has turned into outer space with a black sky, planets, stars and spaceship controls. Our other child is in the school age program and had an incredible experience this summer. They planned so many field trips and engaging activities for the children. The school age teacher is awesome as well! She has high expectations for the students and wants them to succeed in all they do. The students learn here and get lessons in ABCs, etc. but also have so many authentic opportunities to explore and play and develop friendships. We are very happy to have found this place!

When we moved to the area we looked at several daycares. We chose La Petite for the combination of curriculum, friendly vibe, and price. We can tell that the teachers are invested in the kids!

Review №21

As a first time Mom I was very nervous about putting my daughter in daycare. She started going around 10 months old and the very first day they made sure I was completely comfortable before leaving. They even made me a scrapbook page of her first day! They are always so happy to answer the phone and give you updates on how your little one is doing. My daughter is now 2 years old and has been in three of the different classrooms and I have to say, every single employee they have is amazing. I cant rave enough about these ladies; they really take pride in their jobs. They know me and my daughter by name and they even know my husbands name (hes only dropped her off a hand full of times). They always take the time to say hello and ask how you are doing and make sure to give each and every child individual attention. For my very first daycare experience I am so happy I chose La Petite off Church Rd, I hope I never move so I dont have to change locations!

I am beyond excited to have my daughter be a part of such an amazing program. Ashley is the best and welcomed us immediately!!! Thank you Ashley for making us feel welcomed!!!

Review №23

Review №24

We love it here, our teachers have all been so wonderful and truly care about each child!

Review №25

My son just graduated preK here and my daughter is in PreSchool. I cant say enough about this school, the director and teachers are always going above and beyond to provide the best care for my family. We certainly consider LaPetite family and appreciate the part they play in raising our children!

Review №26

My daughter has been attending La Petite since she was four months old and it has been a pleasure to see her grow and learn here. There are staff that have been at the daycare too that she still says hello too and the environment is overall positive.

Review №27

Not only is the staff caring and kind, the flexibility and understanding of the management is immeasurable. We especially love their infant and toddler rooms!!!

Review №28

Excellent daycare center with caring staff and great educational programs.

Review №29

I would recommend La Petite to anyone interested in finding daycare for their school agers. I drop my daughter off before school and she gets bused back and forth from school to La Petite daily. I have no complaints regarding my daughters care. The ladies that directly care for the older group are very professional and always maintain control as I have seen. My daughter enjoys both Faith and Breas guidance when they help with homework. Administratively, Ashley and Kelly do a fantastic job of caring for the parents needs.If I was to complain about one thing it is the parking...very limited as they know and deal with on a daily basis. I think this is a small price to pay knowing that your kids are well taken care of when you are not with them.

My husband and I are beyond thrilled to have found LaPetite Academy. We didnt think a daycare would be a good option for us, since I have an insane freelancers schedule and he works M-F. I didnt want to pay for days we didnt take him and I wouldnt take him unless I had a job. Because my jobs sometimes come up very last minute, it was a lot of work to try to find a babysitter on short notice. In home care is wonderful but finding someone to fit my ever changing week to week schedule was almost impossible. Not to mention very costly.We called around and were surprised to find that LaPetite was the perfect fit for us. Not only do they have a wonderful, warm, loving staff and a great facility that is super close to our house, but they also offer a flex-care option. This is perfect for our needs! You buy 5 days at a time and you use them as you need. So you arent paying for days you dont need. Now when I get a booked on a job, I simply email or call to let them know that our baby will be coming that day. This is great because there are times when I need 5 days for the month and some weeks where I will need him to go everyday. When the 5 days run out, you buy more. They make everything incredibly easy.Our baby loves it here and the staff makes our family feel very welcomed and loved. LaPetite has been such a blessing to us and I would encourage anyone to check them out!
