Welcome to La Petite Academy in Schaumburg, IL. My name is Michele and I am the director. I have an Early Education Associate's degree and a Director Credential Level 1. I began my career at La Petite Academy over 12 years ago as a preschool teacher and have also held the team lead and assistant director positions.
Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool and other early education programs. Our wonderful teachers are dedicated to providing the best care and education. Several hold college degrees in early childhood education or a CDA and they each receive ongoing and monthly training.
We are excited to offer The Prep Lab which is designed to keep School-Age kids on course with their studies. Bring your own device and we’ll provide assistance with accessing lessons, printing materials (as needed) technical support for accessing online learning platforms and basic guidance, when students struggle with a lesson.
Our building uses a coded entry system and each family has a unique pass code. Only prearranged adults may pick up children at departure and our playground is gated. At our school, you'll also love staying connected all day long through our mobile app for parents. Get real-time photos and updates of your child's day so you don't miss a moment. We also offer live streaming video to give you the convenience of being able to view your child’s activities in our classrooms in real time, at any time, with secured access for additional peace of mine.
We follow our rigorous hygiene, cleaning and sanitation procedures, consistent with the CDC and state guidelines. We observe the children’s health and temperature checks throughout the day and respond appropriately as needed.
We offer flexible schedules to accommodate flexible school plans and new working needs for parents. I encourage you to come in for a tour to see everything that La Petite in Schaumburg, IL, can offer your family. We look forward to meeting you!
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
For an additional fee, go beyond regular classroom learning experiences with our enhanced series of fun, interactive enrichment programs exploring a variety of activities. We offer:
Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math
Wondering how you can keep your child’s learning going strong at home? Now you can adapt our personalized curriculum approach to fun activities you can do together.
