At first sight, La Petite Academy seems like it would be a great place for your child - teachers are friendly, director is nice, kids are happy... But after a month of being here, I am looking for a new place. Every morning upon dropping off, the children are sitting quietly at desks... Its barely 7am and there is no activity... Just sitting there, staring at the walls... Not all all inviting to a new child. They stare at you, especially when you walk in. No one seems like they want to be there. My child is terrified of this place. She got MUTILPLE fire ant bites on her foot while outside for ""water day"" and ever since does NOT want to play in water (she is a water baby and loved to play before this). One of the teachers YANKED her by the hand when she sat down. Yes, my child put her weight in it, by sitting down and not wanting to move, but there should have been a better way of resolving this issue, NOT pulling the child by the arm so hard that it hurts them. Upon confrontation, the teacher replied ""Oh, o.k."". That was it. Didn't even try to explain. My child, who at her last daycare, RAN into the building every morning, and was happy all day long, now cries the minute she wakes up, begging and pleading not to go back. Highly dissapointed. It's sad too, I had such high expectations of this place.
