Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Springfield, VA. My name is Rose Vargas and I have been with this daycare four years and have been the director here for one year. I have 32 years of childcare experience and I have my Child Development Associate (CDA) certification. I am also a licensed EMT in Prince William County, VA. Our school - including daycare for infants, preschool programs and more - is in the process of being nationally accredited by NECPA (National Early Childhood Program Accreditation). The standards we follow are higher than those of the State of Virginia. In addition to our regular curriculum, we offer Muzzy Spanish lessons, ABC Music & Me classes, and American Sign Language. I love working here because of the caring atmosphere we feel every day. We have teachers who are truly dedicated and who want to see children succeed! I have always had a passion for nurturing children. I have been a foster parent for six years, where I learned to see what is important for each individual child. I run this daycare here in Springfield as if it were my own. I encourage each of our staff to take pride in what they do and encourage our teachers to be the voice for the children. We strive to make this a warm and welcoming environment for both children and parents, and to keep the lines of communication open for everyone. I constantly keep in mind that our educational daycare is not just simply a business, it is a personal and emotional investment for our families. Most of our teachers have been working at this academy for five years or more. We are all certified in fist aid and CPR for infants through adults. We also have designated staff members who are trained to administer medication in a daycare facility. At least one teacher in each classroom has either a CDA or other early childhood related degree.

"My son seems to like going and they are very buttoned up and clean there. My only complaint is that most of the ladies don’t speak very good English so it can be challenging to communicate at times."

In addition to providing superior local infant care, our preschool program and kindergarten options offer the best early education in the Fairfax Station community! We are in process of becoming nationally accredited by NECPA (National Early Childhood Program Accreditation). We work very hard every day to meet and exceed NECPA's high standards. Our goal is to finish the accreditation process by February 2013. I run this school here in Fairfax Station like everyone is an extension of my own family - the children, parents, and teachers. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment and maintain an open-door policy for anyone who would like to talk.

We are fortunate to have an outstanding team that is dedicated to our children and families! Our teachers truly love all of the children in their classes!
