Welcome to Our School

We are not a typical daycare; we are a learning center! In addition to providing superior Infant Care, our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs offer the best early education in the community!

Whether it is providing loving care for Infants or participating in early Preschool activities, my staff and I strive to give every child the best early education experience.

I am confident that we offer the best program in the Virginia Beach area because our teachers are committed to providing a safe, enriching classroom environment. Many of our staff members have long tenures at our center. Our teachers remain current with monthly training sessions and ongoing training offered by the state. All teachers are CPR and First Aid trained. Our school is licensed by the State and accredited with NECPA; therefore, all state and local policies and procedures are strictly adhered to.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment. Our main entry is equipped with a security system and only those who are authorized are able to enter with a special code.

We invite you to stop in today for a tour of our wonderful La Petite Academy in Virginia Beach, VA!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
We absolutely love La Petite and recommend it to everyone looking for a daycare. We love hearing and seeing the new things our children learn each day. La Petite is an excellent school.
We love La Petite!! Gavin runs into class every day and is always happy every time I pick him up, he is truly receiving the best care there.
I love La Petite and my son does too! He runs into school he can't wait to see his friends and teachers and that makes me really happy :)
La Petite on Culver Road in VA Beach has the most caring group of individuals I have ever met employed there. My son started at 18 months and has grown so much in the almost 2 years he's been there. We went to another daycare briefly (for about 2 months) and I took him out because I didn't feel he was cared for. I came here and have never for a second worried about his safety. I feel like the staff
here actually and truly LOVE my child. I work a lot, and having them care for my child gives me peace of mind to know he's okay so I can take care of what I need to to provide for my family financially. I adore the staff and love to take any chance I get to gush about them.
