Welcome to La Petite Academy of Glen Carbon, IL

Thank you for visiting La Petite Academy educational daycare in Glen Carbon, IL! My name is Michelle and I have the pleasure of being the Academy Director. I have been working in Early Childhood Education as a manager for more than 10 years and I have a Bachelor degree in Sociology of Childhood and Adolescence and a minor in Childhood Studies from Rutgers University. I have been working with children for most of my life and I truly enjoy it!

Our school, which includes infant and toddler care as well as preschool and pre-Kindergarten programs, is nationally accredited by NECPA (National Early Childhood Program Accreditation). We have also been awarded a star level three with the Quality Rating System in Illinois. The standards that we follow are higher than the State of Illinois' Child Daycare Licensing Standards.

We are fortunate to have an outstanding faculty here in Glen Carbon that is dedicated to our children and families. All of our Lead Teachers have education-related degrees, and our Assistant Teachers are pursuing education-related degrees or have multiple years working in the field of early childhood education. Ongoing annual training is provided for all team members. Our entire team has pediatric, child, and adult CPR and First Aid certifications. We are passionate about our roles as caregivers and educators and work hard to meet the needs of each individual child.

We value the relationships we have with our families and work hard to involve them. We offer a number of opportunities for our families to join our classrooms. We have lots of fun annual and monthly events at our academy, including Family Dinner nights, Open Houses, a Neighborhood Block Party, and our very popular Parents' Night Out/Kids Night In!

My team and I would love the opportunity to meet you and your child and to welcome you to our school's family! I invite you to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy educational child care center today!
