Description: Little Learners philosophy is to help children grow and learn in a positive, caring atmosphere while building their self-esteem and confidence so they can grow up to be the best they can be. Our center meets or exceeds all guidelines and regulations set by the state. Our staff is chosen for their knowledge of early childhood, educational principles and the individual child.

Our educational component is planned weekly based upon units of concentration. Included are activities that incorporate the following: self-esteem, interaction with peers and adult communication skills, muscle development and outdoors, group and individual, directed and free activities.

Breakfast, lunch and evening snack is provided on a daily basis at 8:30, 11:30, and 2:30 respectively. Meals are prepared on premises. Posted menus reflect a 25-day cycle and are USDA approved. Meals are served in a modified family style. Tables, chairs and utensils are proportioned to the child.

Balanced activities, protection from fatigue, balanced meals and outdoor playtime are provided to promote the good health of your child. Each child is observed for symptoms of illness.
