Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy, an educational early learning center in New Lenox, IL! My name is Nicole and I am the academy director. I have my degree in early childhood education. I have been working with children for over 20 years and have been at this location for nine 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 keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.

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

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.
