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 17 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 ECE. We closely follow guidance from the CDC and state and local officials during this time as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment.
With 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. We know you’ll be excited about all the amazing features of WatchMeGrow.
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.
