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 Kindergarten Prep 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.
Many of our teachers have earned degrees in early childhood education and have been working with young children for many years. Two of our teachers are bilingual, and enjoy teaching Spanish to the children on a daily basis.
We are peanut-free in order to keep children with allergies safe while they are in our care. Each teachers is certified in CPR and first aid. Safety is a top priority and we are equipped with an entry door security system. Only those authorized for pick-up are able to enter the building and identification is always checked.
