Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Crystal Lake, IL. I am Nadine, the academy director. I have my degree in early childhood education and more than 20 years of experience as a teacher and director. Drawing from this background, I can confidently say that La Petite offers the best Infant Care and Preschool program in Crystal Lake.

We maintain an open-door policy and plan many events for families to participate in. Our building uses a coded entry system and only prearranged adults may pick up children at departure. At our school, you'll also love staying connected all day long through our mobile app. Get real-time photos and updates via text and email so you don't miss a moment.

Our teachers and staff take great pride in presenting Crystal Lake with the highest caliber of care and early education. Our teachers have more than 50 years of combined experience and many of them serve as mentors for other area schools. They stay current on classroom techniques by participating in education training sessions as well as CPR and first aid training.

We have been located here in Crystal Lake since 1999 and have a Silver Circle of Quality rating from Excelerate Illinois. The Excelerate Illinois Program recognized our program's effort in going above and beyond the minimum state licensing requirements when caring for your child.

Call us to schedule a tour and see why La Petite Academy is the leading education daycare in Crystal Lake, IL.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
This school has become a second family. The director is always available, friendly and helpful. They treat my child as if he were one of their own and always say hi to me and him in the morning and goodbye to us both in the evening. The teachers are all friendly and welcoming. I'm very happy with this school.
Best decision I made. I didn’t have much time to decide on a school and once I toured La Petite o knew I made the right choice.
I used to work for this school so I already knew my child would be attending once she was old enough. I felt comfortable with the teachers that I grew to know when working there and meeting the new ones once my child started there. The Brightwheel app they use is awesome because you can see their daily activity posted and send and receive messages to and from the teachers. They also send pictures through
the app!

My children enjoy coming to La Petite. I love brightwheel too! That helps start the conversation of how was your day? We can look at the pictures and my children are able to tell me in detail what they were doing or learning about. Thanks La Petite!!
I really love where my child is at. Miss Robyn has been such a positive influence on our family. I know my child is in good hands and having fun. The classroom is bright and inviting and my child never wants to leave!
I personally have been really impressed with La Petite. We looked at other options, many were more affordable on a weekly basis. But I do really like the added benefits of the brightwheel app and I love that I can have access to the live stream of the room. The money is well worth it because our child is having a great experience. Staff is awesome and very friendly when I pick my child up. They
have my full support and I would highly recommend this place to any of my friends.
