As academy director, I'd like to personally welcome you to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Virginia Beach, VA. My name is Bridgit Pinelli and at La Petite Academy, our infant child care and Junior K programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and child development.
The commitment my staff and I make to offering exceptional child care and early childhood education is unmatched. We have a passion for educating young children in a safe and loving environment and we strive to give every child the best early childhood experience.
At La Petite, we have an excellent program with loving, nurturing teachers who create a warm, welcoming environment. All our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training throughout the year. At least half of our staff here in Virginia Beach has worked here for more than five years and we have some teachers who have been here for 20 or more years. Our teachers are truly connected to each and every child and they build long-lasting relationships with our families.
I find it rewarding when I overhear children telling their parents about all the exciting things they did in their classroom. We treat the children as members of our extended family and we work hard to involve our families every day. We also have a strong management team in place, committed to providing the quality care your family expects and deserves.
Our goals are to be the best educators we can be and to make our school the best learning experience for the children we serve. Call our La Petite Academy at 757-471-6104 and schedule a tour with us. We look forward to meeting you!
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Literacy
We’ve been recognized as a high-quality early education program.

I have a passion for children's education and love being a part of a child's growth and development. As director, I enjoy getting to know all of our families in our school and creating a fun, safe environment for all. I am from Tampa, so if you don't see me at La Petite, I'm probably at the beach.

I have always been inspired by children and their desire to learn. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to become a part of their lives and that of their families. I am truly blessed to be able to help create a fun, safe, and educational environment for our students. Love you all!
