Welcome to La Petite Academy in Rockledge! My name is Lauren and I am the academy director. I hold a bachelor's in early childhood education administration, a VPK-endorsed director's credential, and have 18 years of experience in early childhood education as both a teacher and manager.
I'm confident we offer the best Infant and Preschool care in the area because of our dedicated staff. Our families here in Rockledge and Viera choose us for our teachers. 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.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
Call us today or stop in for a tour to see what our La Petite Academy in Rockledge, FL can offer your family!

I began my teaching path in 2013, and have been growing ever since. After receiving my bachelor's degree in Pennsylvania, I made the trip down south looking for a new home. I was fortunate enough to be welcomed into La Petite with open arms in 2019. My goal is to instill the love of lifelong learning in all the children I care for.
