Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy in Fairfax Station, VA! My name is Melissa and I am the director. I have more than 100 semester hours of college as well as my CDA. I have been with La Petite Academy since 2000 and have been a director for over 13 years.
Our top priority is safety. As mother, I understand just how important is for you and your child to feel safe. This has always been our top priority, but even more so during the pandemic. We have implemented numerous safety protocols: all adults who enter our building must wear a mask, we are not allowing visitors or parents past the front office, everyone who goes back into the classrooms must wash their hands upon entry, we have increased hand washing throughout the day, we have also increased sanitizing to include playground equipment.
In addition to going above and beyond to keep everyone here safe we pride ourselves in providing superior local infant care and our preschool program offer the best early education in the community! In addition we now have The Prep Lab for our School Age children. This program helps keep the children learning and avoid any summer slide. We also proud to share we received our national accreditation in February of 2020 by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation. We work very hard every day to meet and exceed their high standards.
I run this school here in Fairfax Station like everyone is an extension of my own family, and firmly believe that communication and staying connected is everything. One major tool we will have to stay connected is WatchMeGrow. Parents soon will be able to live stream video of theirs child's class through out the day!
Majority of our teachers have over five years of teaching experience. All teachers receive monthly training and are required to obtain 24 hours of training per year.
