Welcome to Our School

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!

Here's what people have to say

4.83 out of 5 stars
I love everything about this school and s does my daughter. From the teachers to the cleanliness, to the safety of my Chile, and especially the brightwheel app. I couldn’t ask for a better school for my daughter to go to for her first experience at going to school. Because of La Petite, my daughter absolutely loves going to school to learn and to see her teachers and friends. I am more than completely
satisfied with La Petite.

Overall experience with the facility is two thumbs up.
Teachers and staff are very friendly. My child loves them.
I love them and everything they do !! They're great!!
The teachers and caregivers here are the best I have ever seen. It is such a relief knowing that they genuinely care for the kids and want to see them do well. My family is always greeted with a smile and kind word and my child never leaves without receiving a hug from the teacher. The staff has helped my child grow physically, mentally and emotionally over the time we have attended here.
