Welcome! My name is Beatrice and I am the director here at the La Petite Academy of Riverview, FL. I currently have an A.S. in early education, a CDA, an Advanced Director credential and a VPK Director endorsement. I have currently been with the company for over eight years and I have over 21 years of experience in early childhood education and management.
Our school includes Infant Care, Toddlers, and Two's, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Before- and After-School Care for school-age children. In all our programs we follow a STEM approach, providing hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We are nationally accredited by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation. We are a part of the Federal Food Program which allows us to provide healthy nutritional meals for all children in our care. We also offer extra curricular activities which include Grow Fit Yoga and Spotlight on Spanish.
We have an open door policy for currently enrolled families and we welcome parents to come in and spend time with their children.
Our entire staff has first aid and CPR training, as well as 45 hour-mandated state training. The majority of our staff has completed their CDA certification and others are currently working on obtaining theirs. All staff members attend monthly training sessions on a variety of topics. Together, we have 100 years of teaching experience!
