Welcome to Our School

My name is Jennifer and as the Academy Director, I'd like to personally welcome you to our La Petite Academy in Chesapeake, VA! I have my master's degree in Early Childhood Education from Old Dominion University and 19 years of experience working in early education. I have been with the company for 17 years.

At La Petite Academy, our Infant Care and Preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. We are excited to offer new technology and the addition of our Prep Lab program in our School-Age classroom. These technology enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding, a new gaming system and more! Our Prep Lab program offers additional learning opportunities to reinforce literacy and math skills.

Communication with families is extremely important to us! We use our brightwheel app to provide updates about each child's progress through out the day. We also have WatchMeGrow, a live-streaming video service for our enrolled families to be able to see for themselves how much fun their children are having through out the day!

Health and safety is a priority for us. We have been following guidance from the CDC and state and local officials to maintain a healthy school environment for our families and staff. We have increased our health & safety measures to include temperature checks of anyone entering our building,

limiting classroom group sizes and encouraging social distancing of children through out the day, and masks are worn by staff and anyone entering the building.

Together, our staff has more than 125 years of experience. We believe in the parent-educator partnership and offer many opportunities for family participation each month.

We service Great Bridge, Grassfield, Deep Creek Central and Butts Road school zones for our after school program. Call us today to set up a tour of our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Chesapeake, VA!
