Welcome to Our School

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 brightwheel app to our families and with our WatchMeGrow app they will have live streaming into our classrooms.

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!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
I’m very happy with everything the school has to offer from location to price to the education.
The teachers are very nurturing and attentive to my child’s needs.
Positive! We love La Petite. Exceeded all expectations.
The director and teachers are very friendly! They show a genuine interest in the well-being of my child
Overall we’ve had a great experience! The teachers are so warm and nurturing to our baby girl - she gets excited at drop off because she knows the love and attention she’ll receive from her teachers. It makes leaving her for the day a little more bearable.
A warm, safe and friendly environment- I know my kids are going to have fun, be active and learn through out their day at La Petite.
The director is always super nice and in a cherry mood. Staff is always welcoming. My son loves this daycare
overall great experience, the director and teachers are all always friendly, joyful, and caring
I can't speak more highly of La Petite of Richmond! All the teachers are amazing. I had no hesitation dropping my 5-month old son off on his first day. He's now 14 months and I am still as happy as ever with the staff at this location. Everyone (including the directors) take a huge personal interest in every kid there. Rooms are meticulously cleaned, the children are well cared for and I can see every
day the results of the teaching and exploration that goes on at La Petite. My husband and I happily take on a 40 minute round-trip commute just to keep our son at this location. I tell every new and future parent that they should enroll their child here!
