Thank you for taking time to learn more about our La Petite Academy in Hampton, VA. My name is Courtney and I am the academy director.
Here at La Petite we offer a safe, nurturing environment in our Infant Program all the way to our School-Age program. Our individualized lesson plans are based on each child's developmental needs to ensure every student is ready to take their next steps.
We strive to stay on the cutting edge of early childhood education which is why our teachers are continuously trained on the latest findings. Many of our teachers have been with our school for over five years and there is always someone on site who is trained in First Aid and CPR. Safety is the utmost importance to us and all visitors must check in at the front desk and provide us with a picture I.D. before entering the classroom area.
We are excited to offer parents a mobile app that allows us to send up-to-the-minute reports, status updates and pictures of your child directly to your phone or email. We also offer video streaming with parental access to help you endure your child's safety and enjoyment through our WatchMeGrow app.
As we are all dealing with this global pandemic we want to ensure you that we are taking every precaution available. Staff has been fully training in proper social distancing and how to facilitate healthy safe activities within the classroom. Temperatures are taken upon entry of our school and all adults must wear a mask. We have increased our oversight o hand washing procedures and sanitation of surfaces and equipment.
As a way to help aid out students academically during this crisis we have introduced our Prep Lab program. This program was uniquely created to keep the flow of learning going while students are experiencing at home learning and virtually.
I would love for you to see all we have to offer, so please set up a tour of La Petite Academy in Hampton, VA today!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
