Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational childcare in Manassas, VA! My name is Nancy 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. For school-age children, we have two buses that service Baldwin Elementary, George Carr Round Elementary, Bennett Elementary, Weems Elementary and Mayfield Intermediate.

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.

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 most 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.

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.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
My husband and I are extremely happy about having our son at La Petite! After touring about nine other childcare centers within the area, LaPetite was our #1 choice. The location, friendly staff, great communication with the Brightwheel app, and weekly cost, we knew our son would be in great hands. Our son has been attending LaPetite for about nine months now, and we couldn’t be happier!
We love the school and the teachers
La Petite is a warm and welcoming childcare school. Sending our daughter there was a great decision! We have seen great social and emotional growth as well as early learning growth in her two short years. The teachers really get to know the kids and the kids have a great time!
Great. When our son joined, he had never been around other kids or anyone other than his grandma. So it was hard for him. He wouldn't talk to anyone the first few weeks. But they worked with him and he really opened up and learned social skills. He now has many friends in his class and is more social outside of the classroom too.
This is simply a wonderful, nurturing small and engaged school. I was so nervous about our child starting daycare, and we have loved every minute at La Petite. The staff is all friendly and engaging and feel like family already. Our child is also learning so much every day. We could not be happier!
