Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy in Glen Carbon, IL where we provide education-based care with extended hours for the working family! My name is Carrie and I am the academy director. I have been working in early childhood education as a teacher and manager for over three years. I have my master's degree in social work from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with a focus on child and family practice.

Our school offers infant and toddler care, private preschool and pre-kindergarten. We are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and have also been awarded a Gold Circle of Quality from ExceleRate Illinois.

We have an outstanding and diverse faculty here in Glen Carbon. Our lead teachers have education-related degrees and our assistant teachers are pursuing education degrees or have multiple years of early childhood experience. Ongoing annual training is provided for all team members and our entire staff has pediatric, child and adult CPR/First Aid certifications.

We recently went through an exciting renovation and now offer the latest in technology; including our camera system and the brightwheel mobile app. Communication is important at our school and we love promoting our open-door policy where parents and families are welcome anytime.

I am proud to say that my teaching team is one of the best in our area! Schedule a tour at La Petite Academy in Glen Carbon, IL today. We can't wait to meet you!

We were satisfied with the school before. However since Carrie became director, we have noticed improvements in communication, staffing, and everything else. We are currently very happy with the school.
We have loved everyone there so far and so do our kids. Everyone is polite, friendly, caring and knowledgeable.
We love LaPetite! The staff and director are amazing.
I absolutely love my daughter's school. She learns so much and is genuinely loved by all of the teachers. I trust them and that she will be treated well each day.
Mr Wes, Ms Carrie, and Ms Laura are our favorites. School is a safe environment. Kids are encouraged to learn and play at the same time.
We love all the teachers. My daughter likes her school and loves her teachers. She walks in the school with a lot of confidence like is her home. Teachers are always sweet, caring and nurturing as well communicative despite hands full, they always stop to say hello, ask how are we doing and give us a word on our child’s day. They are SUPER!
