Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational child care center in Vero Beach, FL! My name is Johanna and I am the academy director. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment for children, families, and staff. We have enhanced our already rigorous health protocols including curbside drop-off to minimize classroom access, temperature checks, and more.

I am confident that we offer the best infant care, preschool and other age-specific programs in the area due to our unique curriculum. Our curriculum is assessment-based for all ages and our teachers are trained to effectively implement lesson plans and assess the development of their students every day and our Prep Lab gives students the support they need during distance learning.

I maintain an open-door policy and plan a lot of events to give families a chance to participate. I work hard to ensure that families have the opportunity to develop strong relationships with us.

Our highly-trained teachers maintain a safe, clean and nurturing environment where children learn through play. We take child development very seriously and strive to improve our educational offerings through ongoing training.

We’re all about sharing. That’s why we want you to feel connected all day, every day. While your child is at our school, you don’t need to miss a single special moment or milestone. With WatchMeGrow technology, a child’s classroom can be viewed on any smart device or computer, from anywhere, by deployed, traveling, or just plain busy parents.

We invite you to stop by for a tour to find out more about the wonderful experiences we offer at our La Petite Academy in Vero Beach, FL!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
My daughter loves her school! She tells me she had fun everyday. She loves and adores her teachers and her friends. She has learned so much and I think she is very prepared for her future.
My experience with this school has been wonderful. My daughter loves coming to school every day and seeing her teachers and friends
Overall, the experience here has been amazing. The teachers are all friendly and provide my child the care needed. Every day my daughter is excited to tell me about her day on the ride home. It makes me feel content knowing that my daughter is safe and taken care of.
The teachers are amazing! The change in my daughter since she started school has been astronomical! She learns so fast. Everyday she comes home and tells me all about her day at school and it is the best part of my day.
It has been a great experience. To know my child is not only developing extremely well, loved, and cared for everyday but wants to be at the school is all a parent could ask for.
I find that this location is excellent in all facets of getting children to be as productive at having good motor development skills I'm extremely happy with this facility
