Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Alexandria, VA! My name is Kayla and I am the Academy Director.

I have been working in the childcare industry for over 10 years from a teacher, to administrator/Director, to Director of Operations. As a mother myself, my goal is to provide a loving and nurturing environment for your children to learn and grow with us!

Our programs, Infant through School-Age, aim to develop the "whole child". We use a research, based curriculum implemented in all ages.

We have an outstanding group of teachers, most of which have been with La Petite for over 10 years with some almost 25 years! Together, they have more than 200 years of experience in early education.

Our team is dedicated to ensuring your child's safety. We are taking extra precautions due to COVID-19 such as taking temperatures at the door during drop-off and limiting parents and visitors to the lobby area to eliminate foot traffic in and out of the classrooms. We are requiring all parents, visitors and teachers to wear facial coverings while in the building. We are following all hand-washing, cleaning and sanitizing guidelines per the CDC and local health department.

For our School-Age friends, we are offering Prep Lab. Prep-Lab is designed by our education team to ensure children are ready for the next grade-level and to support distance learning in the Fall. We understand not all children enjoyed online learning last year. With Prep-Lab, 1 hour of Math and Language Arts each day, we are confident all children will be ready for the next grade regardless of their online learning experience last year.

We know how hard it can be for working parent's to be away from their little ones during the day, so to help put your mind at ease, we also use a secure, live-streaming video app called WatchMeGrow. You can peek in at your little one anytime you'd like so you can stay connected!

Our La Petite family is always growing and we hope you join our family! We look forward to hearing from you!
