Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Chesapeake, VA. My name is Renee and I am the Academy Director. I have a Child Development Associate along with over 15 years of experience in early childhood education.

Our Infant and Preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. We are proud to offer live streaming of your child's classroom directly to your smart device via the WatchMeGrow app. I know as a parent myself, that being able to see your child when you're away can provide a much needed peace of mind. This location has been established for over 25 years and our staff has more than 75 years of combined experience!

We are excited to offer new technology in our School-Age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding, a new gaming system and a secure WiFi network for homework. Our new Prep Lab program for School-Age will focus on math and literacy to help bridge the gap between school years and missed educational time.

Safety and security are of the utmost importance at our school. We know that the pandemic has garnered well deserved concern regarding the health & safety of our children & faculty. We want you to know that at La Petite Academy we have put in place multiple safety enhancements to do our part in helping to stop the spread of Covid-19. Currently, in addition to increased sanitizing & hand-washing efforts we are also doing temperature checks on our staff & families. No parents are currently allowed to enter the school past the foyer entry area & we are escorting all children to & from their classrooms. We make it a priority to recognize and get to know every student who attends our program. We value our relationships with parents and encourage family involvement in our activities and programs.

We provide transportation to the following schools: Georgetown Primary, Carver Intermediate, Portlock, B.M. Williams, Greenbrier Primary, Greenbrier Intermediate, and Crestwood. Please schedule a tour today of our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Chesapeake, VA!
