Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational childcare in Manassas, VA! My name is Michelle Custer and I am the Director. I have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have been working in the child care field since 2007.

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 25 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, we have a live stream camera system called WatchMeGrow you can utilize. 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.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Great place to take your child! Warm, caring teachers, attentive caregivers, affordable fees, awesome teaching materials! Everybody goes above and beyond to make the kids happy!
Love it! Everyone is amazing.
I feel confident that my child is being well taken care for and learning a routine, schedule, skills, and social lessons. She enjoys going.
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!
