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!

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
It's very evident that the teachers and staff enjoy what they do and I feel like I'm leaving my baby in a safe, nurturing environment. I don't have to worry about her because I know that they are certified and up to date on AAP guidelines. They are able to support her developmental needs. The communication is clear and being able to follow the day through the Brightwheel app with pictures helps me
to feel involved while I'm away.

We have nothing but praise for La Petite Glen Carbon. The staff is warm, thoughtful and educated! They get to know every child and became an extended member of our family. Most importantly, they provided a daycare solution for us in a time of need. We are forever grateful for the care and attention he's received at this school. I recommend La Petite Glen Carbon to anyone.
The staff and teachers at this school are exemplary. I could not be happier. I have rarely seen a group of children that are ALL such good friends, and I credit the teachers and school environment for this.
Everything about our experience at La Petite has been positive. The relationships with the directors and teachers has been great and it's a very welcoming environment. We had La Petite recommended to us by a friend/neighbor and have recommended it to others as well. It's a great place for us to be comfortable with the daycare of our child.
This school is so beautiful! The teachers and assistants are so kind. While my son loves ALL of the staff at this school, he always comes home and talks about how much he loves Ms. Kennedi. He is so happy here and I’m glad that we chose this school!

La petite is an exceptional school and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. I will happily recommend to others seeking early childhood or preschool care.
The teachers are fantastic! So thoughtful and cbring!
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.
