Welcome to Our School

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.

The Director Emme is wonderful and I love how she interacts with me and my child.
We have been really pleased with the teachers and staff at La Petite. They truly seem to care about my child and that warms my heart. It's hard for me to leave my child everyday but it makes it easier knowing that his teachers love him.
I've been really pleased with this school.
My son's primary daycare was closed so I used La Petite as a backup. The staff was very friendly & I love the picture updates I got throughout the day.
We have been very happy with our family’s experience here. The teachers are so loving, and my kids run to hug them hello and good-bye every day. I feel that my kids are safe, loved, cared for, and educated very well thanks to everyone at this school!
Very happy. They are doing a great job.
