Mission: We are an international leader in child education and family solutions, which impact and inspire lifelong learning.
Preschoolers at La Petite Academy in Glen Carbon, IL learned the rules of the road recently with expert guidance. Glen Carbon Police Lt. Wayne White and Sgt. James Jones shared safety instruction with children and staff during the school’s Bike Rodeo. The kids learned about obeying traffic laws and enjoyed riding their tricycles and bikes through a special safety course set up by the officers. Hats off to the team and special thanks to the officers, who have led this terrific event at La Petite for 15 years!
Teachers who are looking to advance their careers in early childhood education now have the opportunity to earn a nationally recognized Child Development Associate (CDA) credential through an award-winning program from Learning Care Group. The self-paced program is part of the company’s fully funded teacher development path to support career growth and life-long learning.
La Petite Academy, Inc., is one of the nation’s largest educational daycare companies. We are headquartered in Novi, MI, with more than 450 schools across the country.
Each of our schools is licensed by the state where it operates. In addition, each adheres to the highest standards of safety, security, cleanliness, teaching, and loving care. Every Academy operates the way any good neighborhood business does. We know our community and we understand how best to serve the parents and children who live there.
Along the way, we have become widely recognized for our innovation, leadership, and reputation for excellence in early education. As a pioneer in education-based care, La Petite Academy is matched by very few organizations for the perspective and insight we’ve achieved.
In 2007, we became part of the Learning Care Group, one of the largest providers of early childhood care and educational services in the United States.
Someone very wise once said the children are our future and we need to teach them well so they can lead the way. Okay, maybe that was just a pop song. (Doesn’t make it any less true.)
We want forward-thinkers, doers, nurturers, and difference makers. No matter your position in the organization, you’re here to make a positive impact on a child’s life, every day.
Here, you will play a fulfilling role in helping children learn and grow. (And sometimes, play.) Build strong relationships with children and families, and develop meaningful friendships with colleagues. Discover exceptional resources, technology, and support to empower your work and advance your career. Experience a positive, dynamic environment defined by recognition, respect, and fair treatment.
It’s not only children who learn and grow with us—it’s you, too.
With a national network that provides strength and mobility, and so many roles across the organization, there’s opportunity to advance for all employees, and many paths you can choose.
Plus, we’re always here to help along the way:
We're all about you and your experience. Your health and happiness, your work/life balance, your peace of mind. Beyond competitive compensation, significant growth opportunities, and regular employee appreciation celebrations, we also offer a range of benefits and resources for you to connect, balance, grow and thrive throughout your career. That's why we're pleased to share these great benefits with our full- and part-time (up to 30 hours per week) employees. Benefits may vary by individual location and the average number of hours worked.
I have been working at La Petite Academy full-time (More than 3 years)
Corporate support and positive work environment. Potential for growth within the company.
I have no cons to add at this time.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at La Petite Academy (Federal Way, WA) in August 2017.
My interview was great. The director is very friendly and wants to see staff grow. Also all the ideas that I want to implement and use in the program were welcomed along with the curriculum that is already set and the main goal is to make sure the children are reaching each Milestone to help them grow and develop into a strong learning experience for them to carry on to the next level of their Scholastic lives.
