Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Chesapeake, VA. My name is Vaneica Jones and I am the Director.
For more than 25 years, our center has helped children grow and develop in a safe and inviting environment. In addition to providing superior local Infant Care, our Toddler through Pre-Kindergarten programs offer the best early education in the community. We also have a new Before- and After-School program focused on developing self-esteem and independence.
Most of our teachers have earned degrees in early childhood education and have been working in the field for many years.
We are nut-free in order to keep children with allergies safe while they are in our care. Each teacher is certified in CPR and first aid. Safety is a top priority and we are equipped with an entry door security system. We have also added new safety protocols which include temperature checks of all parents, children, staff, and vendors. Hand washing and sanitation are key within all our classrooms facility wide. We want you to know the health of your family is our top concern!
Our new Prep Lab curriculum partnered with our already great STEM components allow our School-Age children more activities, and learning to foster and education even when not in school. We are making sure the "gap" is filled from any missed public school due to the pandemic with a strong focus on math and literacy.
