Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Rockledge, FL! My name is Lauren and I am the academy director. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education Administration, a VPK-endorsed Director's Credential, and have 17 years of experience in early childhood education as both a teacher and manager. I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in Educational Leadership through University of North Florida.

I'm confident we offer the best Infant Care, Preschool and other age-specific programs in the area because of our dedicated staff. Our families here in Rockledge and Viera choose us for our teachers. They are, without a doubt, the best in the industry. They participate in training throughout the year to stay current in the field of early childhood education.

We treat the children and parents as members of our extended family. We pride ourselves on communication by always being available for feedback, conducting parent/teacher conferences twice a year, and holding quarterly events. We support our breastfeeding families by providing a private lactation area with resources available. Our teachers are truly connected to each and every child, and they build long-lasting relationships with our families. We also have a strong management team in place that is committed to providing the quality care that your family expects and deserves.

Call us today or stop in for a tour to see what our La Petite Academy in Rockledge, FL can offer your family!

Here's what people have to say

4.9 out of 5 stars
This daycare has always been so transparent, kind, and caring towards me and my child. They are extremely communicative and truly care about my child’a well being.
I absolutely love this school and am so grateful to them for taking care of our son.
I’m always amazed that all the teachers, not just my child’s room teachers, know my daughter by name and always warmly greet us when coming and going. My daughter has made strong bonds with the teachers here and I am amazed at all the new things she learns to do and say in their care.
We have had a great experience and my child is learning at a great speed and very smart.
Fantastic team supported by energetic and enthusiastic director. Always feel comfortable dropping off my children to a place I know they are safe and cared for.
Both administrators Mrs. Lauren and Mrs. Dana are great! We are always greeted with a smile and a warm and kind good morning. My daughter absolutely loves her teacher Mrs.Jaimie. She talks about her all weekend and wants to tell her about things we do over the weekend. For me that is very important!
Love this school, I recommend to everyone.
Director, staff and teachers are very welcoming and helpful. My child talks about her teachers all the time and has definitely advanced in learning skills and social skills. This daycare is very safe and offers a great app to keep you up to date about your child. Definitely recommend this school to others.
My children have thrived at this school. My daughter is in Ms. Zaida’s class and she has been wonderful. It is rare to find teachers in Preschool that deliver the high quality of education that my daughter receives in Ms. Zaida’s class. I have seen her advance in leaps and bounds this past school year and I couldn’t be happier.
Great for a first time using daycare
