Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Portsmouth, VA! My name is Angela and I am the academy director. I have over 25 years of experience in early childhood education and absolutely love what I do!

Here at La Petite, we believe that every child deserves high quality care and the best education possible. That is why we offer a comprehensive curriculum for each age group, from infants through school-age. Each curriculum is designed to address the whole child and promote growth and learning in each area of development.

Our staff has been trained to address the needs of each child individually and together, they have over 100 years of experience.

We want the atmosphere here to be one of family and fun. With this in mind, we plan activities and events that allow parents to participate with their children and get to know other families in the process.

Safety and security is a top priority here. Because of this, we are equipped with a locked door and keypad system that requires an access code. We have over 20 cameras in the classrooms and on the playgrounds that allow us to view each area throughout the day. These cameras are also accessible to parents through our mobile app.

If you are looking for a safe, secure setting where your child will learn and grow, then I invite you to come and visit us here at La Petite Academy in Portsmouth, VA!

Here's what people have to say

4.86 out of 5 stars
Everything has been wonderful
I love my child’s main teacher, Ms. Charlie! She is awesome. I can go to work in good spirits knowing she is caring for my son.
My child has grown so much from this school. He has been going here since he was 5 months old and has been going for 2 years now. The faculty is so nice and welcoming. I am a first time parent and his teachers have answered many questions about how to deal with some parenting situations at home (ei. Switching to formula, sleep schedule, homemade educational activities to do with my son, how he interacts
with other kids). I also really enjoy the apps that they use; Brightwheel and Watch Me Grow allow me to know exactly what he's doing, if he's tried using the potty

All the staff is very friendly and nurturing. They are attentive and always willing to talk with you. It is clean. They are the reason we chose this school
My experience with this school has been great so far. I am happy with all of my son's teachers and the staff. They seem genuinely nice and really seem to care for my child. I'm glad we selected this daycare. Also, the ability to watch him throughout the day is a great touch!
