Welcome to La Petite Academy educational childcare in Manassas, VA! My name is Nancy Stewart and I am the Director. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology. I have been working in the child care field since 2000.
Our school - including Infant Care, Preschool and School-Age programs - is nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Programs Accreditation.
We take safety and security very seriously. Our front door is code-accessible only and each child must be signed in and out daily by authorized persons. We are also closely following CDC guidelines as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment. Health codes that we are following include: Face coverings are required by all adults entering the building, all staff and children are having daily temperature screenings when they arrive and we've also strengthened our cleanliness and hygiene practices.
Many of our teachers have worked at La Petite Academy for 10 years or more and there are some who have been with the center for over 20 years. Our teachers receive ongoing monthly training and all of them are First Aid and CPR certified.
We value the relationships we have with our families and work hard to involve them. We offer monthly family events and encourage volunteers in the classroom. Also, coming soon our WatchMeGrow cameras will be going live. This will give the parents access to log on and watch their child throughout the day having fun and learning.
Now more then ever we are working to make sure your child's learning stays on track. Our School Age children will have support with their distance learning requirements this upcoming school year through our innovative Prep Lab program. They will take part in weekly STEM projects and the teachers will provide character-developing activities from our My Best Self curriculum.
We would love to show you what we have to offer at our La Petite Academy in Manassas, VA! Call and schedule a tour 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 creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More

I have been working with children at La Petite since 2006. Over the years, I have worked in every classroom and I enjoy every age. I was promoted to team lead, so I split my time between the classrooms and management.
