Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Chesapeake, VA! My name is Millicent Gerni and I am the academy director. I come into this position with over 20 years of licensed child care management experience. I have a degree in Early Childhood Administration and am currently finishing up my PhD in Education. I am excited to get work with all of the families at La Petite Academy!

Our academy assistant director is Alycia Alvarez. She has a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and is working on her master's degree in human development. She has six years of experience with the company.

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. Each teacher is certified in CPR and First Aid. We are also nut-free in order to keep children with allergies safe while they are in our care.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.
