Now Enrolling for Preschool and Pre-K

The path to kindergarten, and future success, goes through Preschool and Pre-K. The sooner your child starts their journey, the better. Let us ensure their school readiness. 

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Chesterton, IN where we strive to create a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment where children can grow, learn, and play.

We understand how important early childhood development is and the impact it has on future educational success. This is why La Petite offers developmentally appropriate curriculum designed specifically for each stage of early childhood.

All of our teachers receive extensive new employee orientation training along with monthly training to keep up to date on best practices in early childhood education. Our lead teachers are required to hold degrees in early childhood education, elementary education, or child development.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

To help serve the hard-working families in our community, La Petite in Chesterton is open from 6 AM to 6 PM, year-round (only closing on major holidays). You will find that we are centrally located with easy access to the Toll Road and I-94 for city commuters.

We gladly accept CCDF vouchers and On My Way Pre-K program. Call to schedule your tour today!

My daughter loves it and all the teachers are welcoming

We have been very happy with the teachers at this school. They are always greeting my children by name when we arrive. The teachers know all the kids names even if they are not in their classroom. And the things my daughter is bringing home surprise me on a weekly basis - she is learning so much!
Verified Shopper
The infant room teachers are wonderful !!!!
Verified Shopper
We are overall very happy here. Our child does well and we love that we can see her on the cameras. My favorite part of her days is honestly seeing her sit at the table and be patient with all her friends at snack and meal times. She already says more words than when we started and we have only been in school 2 months.
Verified Shopper
We love it. We switched to La Petite from a different daycare and the difference was day and night. My daughter has strong relationships with the children in her classroom and she has strong relationships with her teachers. She has also grown and learned a lot during her time there.
Verified Shopper
La petite staff and their teachers are beyond sweet hearts. Each morning were agreed with a warm hello and a great big smile. If my little is being shy during the morning drop off,one of his teachers instantly makeing him giggle. Also, I like the healthy variety meals that are prepared daily. Furthermore my son has learned so much adding and subtracting and so much more.
Verified Shopper
Great. Staff seems nice and caring. They appear to genuinely care for the children.
Verified Shopper
We have three children at La Petite, and the staff have become more like family. And that is extremely comforting as our little ones spend so much of their days there. It was the most difficult choice putting them into daycare, but La Petite has made it that much easier!
