Progressive Education

Latest News

In the month of October we had many celebrations that gave us the opportunity to connect as a community and as a village. It was beautiful to see the collaboration of our parents working together. Through our different committees, we all worked together to prepare for Grandparents & Special People Day and Halloween. We also came together with the Outreach Committee and began collecting donations for Feeding South Florida to benefit those affected by Hurricane Michael. We thank all of our families who have donated to this cause as we continue receiving donations every day. It is only with the help of invested parents that we can grow and strengthen our community, and I am so thankful for the parents we have as part of our group. Our school doors are always open to you, and you are always welcomed and encouraged to participate.

La Piazza represented our school at the BKB Fair this month. Meeting with other schools in our community was a great experience, and it makes us feel proud to be pioneers in progressive education, where we value our children’s socioemotional development. We want our children to excel in all areas – emotional, interpersonal, academic, creative and social. We strive as a school to give our children and families the tools to accomplish all this, and more.

Our School

We believe children are unique, highly capable beings who develop at their own pace. It is the role of educators to nurture, support, and celebrate each child as an individual.

We cultivate the ability to wonder, to question, to explore, to discover, to think critically, and to be compassionate as students pursue their interests while mastering the skills required to be happy, effective members of society.

We are a community that nurtures the socio-emotional well-being of each individual, so they can become a well-rounded citizen of the world. Students are guided to master major concepts, processes and skills as they build connections between ideas.

Children are given opportunities for self-directed inquiry as well as collaboration with their peers. The goal is to teach children “how to think, not what to think” as they prepare to be outstanding global citizens.

Learn more about our academic programs

La Piazza Academy is a loving environment that has nurtured a love of reading, an appreciation for the arts, and a healthy sense of self in my child. It has also helped him become fully bilingual, and with their Mandarin program, soon to be trilingual.

I value all the teachers and their daily commitment to my son and recommend this school to my friends without hesitation.

Aryel R.

Our oldest son has been attending for 2 years now and we recently enrolled our youngest. Both boys are super happy. It says a lot about a school when your kids are eager to attend school.

LPA, in my opinion, is the best pre school. It’s such a cozy and nurturing environment for kids. They have great teachers that truly care for your child. And the academic program is A+. I’d definitely recommend this school for any parent.

Ericka S.

My son has attended La Piazza Academy since it’s opening and now as a Kindergartner has a deep love and enthusiasm for learning.

I am so grateful to have found this special school and would recommend them to any family looking for a unique educational experience, that focuses on the social, emotional and intellectual development of each child.

Carolyn C.

My son loves La Piazza. He runs to the door every day excited to go to school. The teachers are fantastic and truly care about my child’s well-being and education.

She is always present, available, and communicative. You can tell that everyone at the school loves working there. It’s a great environment and I am so happy my son goes there.
