Families in La Porte have entrusted the care and early education of their children to The Peanut Gallery, La Porte for well over 30 years. Our directors, teachers, and staff are dedicated and nurturing child care professionals who are here to help your family make the most of these precious early years.

We take a skill-based approach to early education that balances social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. The flexibility built into our curriculum allows us to customize educational activities to match the interests and current skill level of each student so that these first educational experiences are engaging and fun!

Our Preschool & Childcare Programs

Kind Child

Our Kind Child program was designed to help young children develop social skills and character. We focus on social-emotional skills within our monthly curriculum and introduce character traits like Responsibility, Thankfulness, and a Positive Self-Image every two months.

The goal of Kind Child is to elevate the emotional well-being of every child in our care and enrich friendships. We also spread kindness into our community through local volunteer activities and by holding Kind Child events like our annual Trike-A-Thon, which raises funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Kindergarten Readiness

An exceptional education is an important part of our preschool’s promise to you. Most daycare centers and preschools that you’ll encounter when searching for care either have no curriculum or utilize a curriculum based on themes. We take a different approach.

Our Ascend Curriculum is skill-based and focuses on progressively building skill sets across nine different subjects each month. We work towards age-appropriate developmental milestones in every program and fine-tune important skills just before kindergarten during Kindergarten Club. We want your child to develop a lifelong love of learning and enjoy the exciting transition into elementary school!

Yvonne Carney

School Director

Hello, I am Yvonne Carney, I have been a part of the family since July 8, 1985. I started working in childcare after I graduated from La Porte High School in 1985. During my time as a teacher for twenty years, I was given the opportunity to learn many skills, including being a better mother to my son. As time went by, my skills improved as a lead teacher and soon after I became Director. I have been the proud Director of a school that is known by many generations in our community. I have been married to my best friend, Gary, for 26 years. We were blessed with a son, Andrew. They are my heart and soul. My hobbies include crocheting, RC cars, camping, fishing, and sewing. My favorite thing to do is interacting with children.

Great place for your kids. My youngest is almost 6 and he has been attending since 6 months old. They treat every child fairly, keep you informed, and give your child activities that support their development. There is also a bus drop off and pickup for your child  The staff is incredible!

Best daycare EVER! We have been at the daycare for nearly 7 years and I could not as for a better staff! Most of them have been there for many years. I have a son with Autism and they all go out of their way to help him in any way to make him feel safe and comfortable. The director of the facility has been there over 30 years and makes sure that every single child that is in her care feel important and cared for. I would recommend this daycare to anyone!

We have been at Peanut Gallery for almost 10 years! The entire staff is amazing. One thing I like most about Peanut Gallery is they have a lot of long term teachers. Unlike most daycares in the area they do not have a high turnover rate of young high school/college workers. We recently took a vacation that kept my 4 year old out of daycare a little over a week, he was over vacation and just ready to go back to school. He constantly talks about his teachers and friends at home and I know he's truly loved and taken care of while my husband and I are at work.
