Welcome to Our School

Welcome to our La Petite Academy educational daycare in Round Lake Beach, IL. My name is Tera and I am the center director. I have an associate's degree with a focus on early childhood and have been working in the industry for 16 years.

At La Petite, our infant child care and preschool programs provide the perfect foundation for learning and development. We encourage families to participate in a variety of events and activities including parent/teacher conferences, family literacy night, family game night and more.

The loving teachers at our academy have more than 160 years of combined experience in early education. We value the relationships we build with all our families here in Round Lake Beach, and to help each child develop a love for learning, we partner closely with our families to ensure each child's individual needs are met.

We invite you to call us today to schedule a tour of our La Petite Academy and to see why we are the leading early childhood center in Round Lake Beach, IL.

Here's what people have to say

5 out of 5 stars
Love the director, Tera. Friendly every day, so nice to the kids(they all LOVE her) kept very clean.
We feel very comfortable with having our children at this school. We have come to know the staff very well, and the teachers treat our children as if they are their own. There is nothing more comforting than seeing the teachers embrace our children in a big hug as we drop them off each day.
I love the teachers and program. Everyone is always so friendly and my son adores Miss Tara, Miss Daniela and Miss Maria. He never leaves without giving hugs. I just know that he is safe and “at home” here.
My overall experience has been wonderful and wish my children could attend elementary at La Petite Academy :) I am very happy this experience has laid a great foundation for their future learning cadence
We love Ms. Janna and Ms. Jordyn. They have done a great job of communicating with the parents and planning fun holiday acitivities for the kids. They do great crafts with our child and have been wonderful in the potty training process. I'm sure all of the teachers are awesome, but we have primarily worked with those two, and we love them!
The facility is always clean. They serve really good snacks and the staff is very friendly.
