Supporting Our Community

As always, we’re proud to support our community. It starts with a healthy, safe environment when your child is away from home. Learn how we prioritize the well-being of your children and our staff.

Plus, read how we keep learning on track for elementary school students with The Prep Lab, offering distance learning support and extra math and literacy experiences in summer camp.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy educational daycare in Chesterton, IN. We are an Early Childhood Education state approved provider. My name is Rachel and I am the academy director.

This school has provided children a safe, nurturing and supportive environment in which to grow, play and learn for many years. At La Petite Academy, our infant care and preschool programs, as well as our school-age program, provide the perfect foundation for learning and development.

Combined, our staff has more than 100 years of experience. Nearly all of our teachers hold a degree in early childhood or elementary education. Our teachers are also CPR and first aid certified. The staff stays current with monthly training sessions and ongoing training opportunities offered by the state.

Safety is a top priority which is why all doors are locked from the outside and we require a code to enter through our front door. Only enrolled families and staff may enter the building.

Call us to schedule a tour and see why we are the leading early childhood education provider.

Here's what people have to say

4.8 out of 5 stars
My kids love their Teachers and all of the Staff. We are welcomed by name and the kids receive many hugs daily. All of the Teachers have committed to my kids development. All of the Staff treat us like Family.
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!
The infant room teachers are wonderful !!!!
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.
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.
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.
Great. Staff seems nice and caring. They appear to genuinely care for the children.
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!
All of the women are amazing! They all love and care for my boys as if they were their own. My boys absolutely love their teachers as do I. They have been amazing in my transition back to work after being a stay at home mom. The Watch Me Grow feature is one of my favorites because I can see right into the classroom from work! All around best school in the area hands down!
