Welcome to La Petite Academy located in Bloomington, IL! La Petite Academy offers excellent Infant Care and Private Preschool in the area. Our facility is NAEYC-accredited and holds a Gold Circle of Quality in Illinois' ExceleRate program.
The health and safety of your child is our highest concern -- in addition to rigorous cleaning procedures, we are currently offering lobby drop-off and pick-up while limiting visitors into our building. We require masks for everyone entering the building. Temperature checks and health screenings are done upon arrival and throughout the day as well. We have partnered with local nurses in the area to help monitor our handwashing and the environment to make sure we have the best and safest care in the area!
All of our staff members are CPR/First Aid/AED trained and we have an AED located in our hallway in case of an emergency.
We are excited to offer the newest technology app, brightwheel which sends real-time updates about your child’s day and each room has live cameras which parents can sign up for using the WatchMeGrow app and view a live glimpse of their child’s day.
We are so excited to offer a Prep Lab for our School-Aged children to help them maintain the vital skills that they need to keep sharp and ready for school when it resumes in the fall, whether in person or online classes. The Prep Lab is a school-age specific program integrating fun and academics in a grade specific atmosphere -- we're here for you this fall regardless if you need part-time or full-time care.
Call us to schedule a tour today - or schedule online! We'd love to have you join the La Petite Family!!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.

We’ve been recognized as a high-quality early education program.
In this classroom, your child will make discoveries and think independently, as we prepare them for the future. The authentic Montessori curriculum enables children to learn in their own way, at their own pace, through the practical application of sensory-based and self-directed activities. Our certified Montessori teacher spends significant time with each child, helping them discover unique talents and interests. Plus, a full complement of Montessori equipment offers tangible, hands-on learning opportunities to develop children’s skills and senses.
This mixed-aged classroom (for 3- to 6-year-olds) also helps children to develop social skills and challenges them to learn to work together—while being mindful of the best interests of others.
