Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy Educational daycare in Springfield, VA. My name is Katara and I am the Academy Director!

La Petite Academy offers educational child care, with comprehensive programs for Infants through Junior Kindergartners. We provide a strong curriculum in a safe, loving and stimulating environment. Our School Readiness Pathway is designed to create the most fitting path for each child, focused on key milestones and designed to meet every child's individual developmental needs.

Our staff is highly qualified, most with more than 10 years of experience. In addition, our staff maintains their CPR/First Aid Certification and a valid Child Development Certification.

The health and safety of our students and staff is always a key focus for us, especially now with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are following all State and CDC guidelines in place. We have enhanced our already rigorous cleaning and sanitation procedures to ensure we are doing everything possible to keep germs from spreading. We have established new health and safety protocols such as; all staff wearing face masks, temperature and health checks for everyone before entering the school, limiting who can enter the classrooms, etc.

We provide a daily communication app called brightwheel to help you feel connected to your child during the day. We send information daily on their activities at school as well as meals, naps, pictures, etc. Coming soon- WatchMeGrow a live streaming of your child's classroom.

We have multiple options available for enrollment in our school age program to help balance Fairfax Counties return to school plan for the 2020-21 school year. We will be providing support for both the virtual learning and hybrid in-school options. We are also offering a program called Prep Lab to help reinforce your child's learning in the areas of Math and Literacy.

I invite you to come in for a tour of our La Petite Academy in Springfield, VA. We can't wait to meet you!
