Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy, an educational early learning center in New Lenox, IL! My name is Carrie and I am the academy director. I have my degree in early childhood education and in graphic design, as well as my CDA. I have been working with children for over 20 years and have been at this location for 10 of them.

We offer Infant Care, Preschool, Private Kindergarten and other early education programs, each with a curriculum that is designed to meet each child's individual developmental needs and goals. Parents are kept up to date with their children's progress in the classroom through newsletters, conferences, and phone calls.

Our building uses a coded entry system and only prearranged adults may pick up children. We have a strong team of dedicated teachers with years of combined experience. All staff goes through CPR and First Aid certification, as well as ongoing monthly training.

We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.

We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.

Give us a call to schedule a tour of our outstanding school today! We cannot wait to meet you!

My general experience with this school has been nothing less than amazing! I am so happy with the staff and the way they treat my children! My children are learning and growing so much more than I could have ever imagined!
I’ve been sending my children to LPA for 7.5 years. This wonderful team has included women (and one man - he was awesome) who care about how my children are growing. I feel secure leaving my children in their care within their clean facility while I continue my career. I look forward to many more years with my location.
