Welcome to La Petite Academy in Champaign, IL!

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Champaign, IL! My name is Heidi Parker and I have been the Academy Director here since 2009. I have a bachelor’s degree in German and Speech Communication, as well as a master’s degree in early childhood education. I hold a Type 04 Illinois Teaching Certification and have over 10 years of experience teaching and managing. Drawing from these experiences, I can confidently say La Petite Academy offers the best infant daycare and private preschool in the area.

In addition to being the director, I am also the mother of three children who attend La Petite. That is the driving force behind my passion and energy to provide children with the best possible early education experience! Our academy has provided children a nurturing and supportive environment in which to grow, play and learn for the past 25 years.

Our entire staff is trained in early childhood education and nearly all of our teachers hold a degree in early childhood or elementary education. Each staff member is also CPR and first aid certified. They stay current with monthly training sessions and ongoing training opportunities offered by the state.

Communicating with families and being a part of their children's lives are my passions. Every day, I am helping families raise independent, confident and caring children who love to learn!
