Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

As academy director, I'd like to personally welcome you to our La Petite Academy educational center in Virginia Beach, VA. My name is Trae Moore and at La Petite Academy, our Infant child care through School Age programs provide a great foundation for learning and child development.

All our teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training throughout the year. At least half of our staff here in Virginia Beach have worked here for more than five years and we have some teachers who have been here for 20 years or more. Our teachers are truly connected to each and every child and they build long-lasting relationships with our families.

We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

Our goals are to be the best educators we can be and be flexible with our learning as our world is changing to give the best learning experience for the children we serve. Call our La Petite Academy and schedule a tour with us. We look forward to meeting you!

La Petite - S.Independence,You go girls! We absolutely love every staff member of the school. You show Logan so much love and kindness throughout the day. He’s got something new that he’s learned to pull out of his sleeve every day but it’s all because of you. Thank you for your hard work, and for everything you do to keep us informed.

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.
