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.
It is our goal to offer a comforting peace of mind to the families who entrust us with their children each day. This is why safety is a top priority at our facility. All of our exterior doors remain locked throughout the day with access only granted through personalized codes for each family. Parents are also provided with live camera access to their child’s room so they are able to check in throughout the day. Through the brightwheel app, families can communicate directly with teachers by sending messages and pictures. Along with these safety features, all of our teachers are First Aid and CPR certified and we closely follow CDC health recommendations to keep our students, staff, and families well and happy.
To help serve the hard working families in our community, La Petite, 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!
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.
Our first priority is creating a secure environment where infants both are safe and feel safe. In our Infants classroom, we provide toys and materials that allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their natural curiosity. This makes the classroom both nurturing and stimulating.Learn More
