Our Mission

At Little Learners, our mission is to serve the community by offering a stimulating and nurturing learning environment for young children. Early childhood education is the foundation for future education. We continue to strive to provide the children in our community with the highest quality of education and childcare.

Curriculum

Our school offers a variety of early learning programs to promote school readiness. We also collaborate with several outside agencies to ensure that our children have the skills they need to become productive citizens and life learners.
