Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Virginia Beach, VA! My name is Michelle and I am the academy director. I have been in the childcare industry, both teaching and directing, for over 15 years now.
We have a wonderful, welcoming and nurturing staff who have remained with us and continue to grow and excel in their careers here at La Petite. Along with this, our curriculum and intentional planning meets the needs of each individual child. Each class is filled to the brim with new learning materials.
Our mobile app lets us send photos and status updates on the activities your child is engaged in, events, alerts and more! Our building is equipped with a coded entry system and attendance is electronically tracked. Our school is licensed by the State and accredited with NECPA; therefore all state and local policies and procedures are strictly adhered to. We provide transportation to Strawbridge, North Landing, Three Oaks, Ocean Lakes, Birdneck, Seatack, and Redmill Elementary Schools. We look forward to meeting you soon!
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More

I have always had a passion for children's education and love being a part of a child's growth and development at every age level. I take pride in building a strong sense of community both inside and outside the school, partnering with parents and teachers to ensure lifelong learning.
