My favorite thing about La Petite is when I drop my son off in the morning and his teachers and the other kids shout his name and seems genuinely happy to see him. It makes me feel so good that he is welcomed so warmly in the mornings. Also, I love getting updates or hearing stories about his day when I come pick him up.

Certifications: Illinois ECE Credential Level 2

I have been in the early childhood field since 2002. It is fascinating to me to watch children’s minds work. Children pick up so much knowledge during the day and as educators it is our job to create an environment that enhances these experiences. It is my goal as the director to facilitate an environment that is warm, loving, and educational for all children who attend LPA!

Meet Our Staff

Leslie Guinto, Assistant Director

Education: Pursued an Assistant's Degree in Early Childhood Education; Pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education

Certifications: Illinois ECE Level 4 Credential

I have been in early childhood since 2009 and at LPA since 2016, working with all ages of children. I love watching children learn and grow and it amazes me how much they learn from one another. I have two sons and a daughter that I love watching learn and grow, too. I want LPA to be a place that all children know that they are loved and I want them to enjoy coming to LPA to learn and play.
