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

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 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.

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

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.
