Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy of Riverview, FL!

My name is Beatrice Natasha and I am currently the Director of La Petite Academy of Riverview. I 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 nine years and I have over 21 years of experience in early childhood education and management.

We ensure the safety of our families, staff, and community by closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme caution and care to maintain a safe and healthy school environment at all times during the day.

Our school offers care from 6 weeks to 12 years of age. 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 will also be offering The Prep Lab which is designed to keep school-agers on course with their studies during their missed in school time during the pandemic. We also offer extra curricular activities which include Grow Fit Yoga and Spotlight on Spanish.

Coming soon in the fall our new WatchMeGrow technology, you’ll be able to view your child’s activities in the classroom on any smart device or computer. Deployed, traveling, or just plain busy parents will be able to see their child learn, play, and grow every day, all day. The exciting features of WatchMeGrow include:

· Live streaming video

· Encrypted and tightly controlled

· Every account authorized individually

· Intuitive and easy to use

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!
