Progressive Education

Latest News

The past weekend was full of many beautiful community activities at La Piazza. Friday was our Father’s Day celebration and brunch. It was beautiful to see the dads come out and participate in a special event with their children. Then, this Saturday marked our annual Family Picnic on Virginia Key Beach Park. It was a very successful event and we had a great turnout of families from both campuses. We are so happy to be able to share moments like these with our community! Each year we become stronger as a school and as a family.

This week, some of our team members from both campuses are attending a special practicum at the Evergreen Community School in Santa Monica, CA. Evergreen is one of the best progressive schools in the world, and we have worked closely with them over the years to develop our progressive and unique program. Our teachers and staff are lifelong lovers of learning, and we appreciate this as we place a big emphasis on the importance of professional development. By always improving our skills and keeping to date with the latest advancements in the field of education, we are making sure we provide our children with the very best educational experience.

This month, the school will be closing for Spring Break from March 24th through March 29th. Day care services will be provided, upon request, from 8:00AM to 3:00PM. Please sign up via Zippslip if you are interested.

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.
