Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy of Centreville, VA. My name is Maila and I am the academy director. I am certified in Early Childhood Education and bring over 20 years of experience in early childhood education and management.

Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool programs, Junior Kindergarten, and a robust School-Age program, which now includes The Prep Lab- a full- day option to support your child's distance learning. We are also fully accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation, which means that the standards we follow here are far greater than those required by the State of Virginia's Child Daycare Licensing Standards.

A majority of our teachers have been with our school for over five years and together, they have over 100 years of combined experience. We create a loving and welcoming environment here at La Petite Academy of Centerville, and provide opportunities for children and families to participate in activities that develop strong relationships and build the bonds of community.

Our children are kept safe and secure while you stay connected with WatchMeGrow- the service that provides live-streaming cameras in all of our classrooms. We've also added additional health and safety protocols, such as requiring staff and visitors to wear face coverings, performing temperature checks upon arrival, and completing wellness checks throughout the day.

My name is Maila, and I'm the proud director of La Petite Academy of Centreville. My mother once told me that as a young child when asked "What do you want to be when you grow up?" my consistent response was "a teacher!" I'm so glad that I've lived up to my younger self's ideal chosen path. I can't say enough about the importance of quality education and positive experiences for young children, and am honored everyday to be a part of providing that for children and families at our school.
