About the Provider

Description: Educational excellence, unwavering dedication and outstanding child care. Those are the values that Little Learners on Campus stands for. Demand for daycare facilities continue to grow day by day, but all too often, institutions are only able to focus on either allowing the child to enjoy their childhood and develop naturally or forcing the child to focus only on mental development in order to achieve high test scores later on in life. Little Learners on Campus is different. We promote physical activities in large open areas and a wide variety of educational games, but we also have a small library and various arts and crafts for your child to unleash his or her full creative and intellectual potential. Our goal is to promote every child's development individually using an appropriate mix of academic and recreational activities.

Additional Information: This facility is authorized to administer over-the-counter topical ointments only; Initial License Date: 8/24/2010;

If I could give this daycare 0 stars, I would. Upon conducting our interview with them, Andrea and Sue seemed like very nice women. After our child was in their care for more than 3 weeks, that's when the trouble started. Andrea is money hungry, and lied on multiple occasions about how much was owed to her. She is a joke, and should not be allowed within 1000 feet of a child!!!!!!! Although the facility is now closed (THANKFULLY), I pray that no one has to endure her nonsense. She likes being known as the tough b****, as once stated to me, along with another parent of a child that went there. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stay far away from Andrea Panara, and the horrible daycare provider that she is!!!

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Have taken my child to the Center for over 1 year. Found the staff to be capable and ready to assist my daughter. The Center Director was always available and had the best interest of my child as a main concern

My grandson started attending at age 2. the first day he went in willingly and was happy. the second day the same.The third day he started screaming as we approached Little learners.The owner or operator of this facility is rude and its obvious money is her only objective here. The children are just a pawn to get paid.about the fifth day I took my grandson there and they had the door locked and I knocked loudly for about 5 min. I had to leave with my grandson and could not return to my job as I had to care for him myself.He only made it through 2 weeks as I could see this was a bad place and I could not bear seeing my normally happy grandson so upset and sad. Please do not send your child to this nightmare of a place! Ps all the supposed activities and learning is bull

My child attended this day care for one month. The teacher, Ms. K was awful. She was rude and gave me attitude on a daily basis. She yelled at the kids all the time, called my child "bad" for having accidents (not yet potty trained) and even punished my child for doing so! Stopped in unannounced during the day, and it was like a prison. The children were sitting at tables, silent, not doing anything! My child just looked at me, no emotion, nothing. When my child tried to get up to leave, Ms. K yelled at him to sit, RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. There is no positive speak toward the children. My child came home and told me one day Ms. K threatened to slap if there were any more accidents. My child has become so traumatized by this care, that he's developed a stutter since attending, because of the constant critisism and punishment by Ms. K! I am appauled by the care at this facility!!
