Welcome to La Petite Academy in Midlothian, VA. We provide quality care for children two months to 12 years old from all around the Brandermill, Woodlake, Powhatan and Chesterfield communities. Our school provides Infant Care, Preschool and Pre-K, as well as Before- and After-School care for school-agers. We have been NECPA-accredited for more than 20 years!
More than 90 percent of our teachers have a college degree and combined, our staff has over 200 years of experience in child development and teaching.
With the changes that we have experienced since early 2020, we have continued to create a space that is safe and healthy for all families. We have always maintained the highest level of health and safety practices including hand washing and on-going daily cleaning procedures prior to COVID-19. We are even more committed to keeping our quality of these practices at the forefront of everything we do. Currently we have been limiting the number of people in the building as well as requiring all adults to wear face coverings. Also, we are taking the temperature of anyone that enters our school in an effort to monitor the health and well-being of everyone that is part of our La Petite family.
Also as part of our commitment to families we offer live streaming video access through the app WatchMeGrow. In conjunction with this we use brightwheel, an app that allows for direct communication between staff and families, ongoing updates through the day as well as photo sharing!
For our school age children, we have exciting programs to engage and encourage summer educational growth as well as our Prep Lab which will support our older learners throughout the upcoming school year.
We invite you to stop by or call for a video tour of our wonderful La Petite Academy educational child care in Midlothian, VA, so you can witness what an exciting school we have in the wonderful community of Brandermill.
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
