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
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!
We have really enjoyed La Petite. The teachers are always really friendly and it seems like the kids are always doing fun and educational activities. The La Petite staff are always good at communicating with us. And I really like that the teachers stay the same. The previous daycare we used seemed to have a high turnover rate and that made me uncomfortable with that particular institution.
Over the 3 years that we’ve had our daughters enrolled we’ve grown to care for the staff members as though they are family. They care for my children with love and compassion. They are an amazing team and they give their all to the children’s day families. When my daughter started taking her first steps they made sure I didn’t miss it. Rather than telling me when I picked up they took video and sent
it to me at work. It warmed my heart and truly showed that they are willing to go the extra mile for their families. I highly recommend LaPetite to all my friends. Chester branch rocks!!!

We switched from a different daycare because we felt our child was not getting adequate attention. After that whole experience, I couldn’t be more pleased with La Petite. The atmosphere is infinitely more professional, nurturing and just over all pleasant. The staff always seem to be smiling. And my daughter is so much happier than she was at her previous daycare. I used to dread taking her to daycare,
but now that she’s at La Petite I feel totally at ease when I drop her off at daycare because I know she’s in great hands.
