About the Provider

Description: Lil People’s was started out of love for children. Their dream of owning and operating their own school started in the early days of talking while studying in their dorm room. Shortly after they both graduated they decided to give it a try after Dawn decided to leave her job in Corporate America because she felt their was no quality care and their was a huge lack of education in the facilities available to her young infant. Lisa was in absolute agreement …and thus Lil’ People’s Playhouse Inc. was established in 1991.

The emphasis on quality care, small groups of children and a well developed curriculum was so important to them both. Not only was curriculum important but they felt trust between parent, child and teacher were huge components to further aide the children’s progression, (both academically and socially) while attending their school.
