The Pettengill Academy Difference

Natural Playgorund for young students

We have over 5,000 square feet of natural play space to help bring creativity back to play and give students an appreciation for the natural world around us. We also have almost 1,000 square feet of play space for our infants and toddlers that is rubber matted for additional safety for our younger students.  

Relationship Based care for families and students

Communication with parents and families is extremely important to us at Pettengill Academy. We use a digital communication app called Kidreports to share the students day. It allows parents and teacher to message each other in a safe and secure way along with Daily Reports and pictures.

Care is dependable for families and students

Parents and families can rely on us for consistent care as we strive to be open during most types of weather and we are typically closed for only 15 days per year which includes days for Teacher Training as well as Holidays.

Pettengill Academy believes in supporting our community that supports us. We participate in various local events such as the FEZtival of Trees and the Museum L/A Innovation Fair, help local agencies with by holding diaper drives, food drives and a collection to help our military servicemen and servicewomen serving overseas.
