About the Provider


Classical Learning Adventures, PV108066. 4186 Bruce Ave. Director: Lindsay Bell-Martinson, M.A., M.Ed. 406-670-4860. Conveniently located on Billings South Side, we are a small, family-based facility. We offer full- and part-time care for children 2 months and older, and before- and after-school care (travel provided in the area). Boasting "Child Care with the Comforts of Home ~ Preschool with the Merits of Homeschool," we offer a fantastic daily preschool program and believe that nurturing a child's wonder and curiosity is crucial: songs, pictures, music, stories, exploration, chants, art, play and pretend are just a few ways that help curiosity and wonder thrive, and also prompt children to learn naturally, effortlessly, and instinctively. We welcome Best Beginnings Scholarships and offer various payment schedules and methods. All staff are CPR and First-Aid certified, and the Director holds certificates in CPR/BLS/AED/BFA and Emergency Oxygen for general population and Aquatics. The Director also holds two advanced degrees, a Montana Teacher License, and has more than ten years of experience with children in the classroom and younger. We look forward to meeting you and your child. Please call 406-670-4860 to schedule a visit!
