Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational child care program in Richmond, VA!
At La Petite Academy, our programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. We pride ourselves on maintaining a warm, family-friendly atmosphere where children and their families are treated like an extension of our own families. We offer infant through school-age programs here at our school and are excited to show you all of the things we are learning and experiencing today! We are excited about our summer curriculum, especially our Kindergarten Cadets and Prep Lab programs, helping to keep our students' minds active during the extended break from school.
The teachers at our school here in Henrico are devoted professionals who care deeply about nurturing and educating children. Our teachers attend ongoing training sessions to maintain knowledge of the latest findings in the field. Combined, our staff has more than 287 years of experience. Our teachers will send real-time updates through our Family Communication App to our families and with our free Live Streaming Video app they will have access into our classrooms through your device.
Safety is a top priority at our school! Visitors' IDs are always checked upon entry and our doors are equipped with a security system that only allows those authorized to enter the building. With the current health crisis, visitors and guests are limited to the front lobby and temperatures are taken at arrival. We have continued our rigorous cleaning and hand washing routines to maintain a healthy environment for our families and staff!
Everyone on staff is trained in CPR and First Aid to ensure the safety of our children throughout the day.
Call us today to schedule a tour and see the many ways your child will thrive at our La Petite Academy in Short Pump! We look forward to making you a part of our family!
