Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare of Great Neck in Virginia Beach, VA! Our school is a beautiful center for Infant Care, Preschool and other early education programs. We also have a School-Age program that includes Prep Lab, a program designed to bridge the gap from missed educational time, transportation from school, homework guidance and more!

Our staff has more than 170 years of combined experience and participates in training throughout the year. We are dedicated to creating an enjoyable, stimulating and safe environment for your child. Between our unique door codes and our strict identification check process, we are constantly monitoring who enters and leaves the building. We're also implementing morning temperature checks and wellness checks throughout the day, along with other health protocols due to COVID.
