Little Elks is an excellent preschool with a sweet, nurturing environment, a family feel and a curriculum at all levels that prepares its students academically, socially and emotionally for kindergarten. I am beyond grateful that I found this little gem where my children blossomed and their teachers and friends were wonderful!

This program is so much more than a daycare, it's an actual SCHOOL! The teachers and staff do an excellent job keeping students safe, happy, and learning. They go above and beyond the average learning at preschools, preparing students socially and educationally for Kindergarten.

We LOVE Little Elks! We were new to the area a few years ago and in search of a sweet local pre-school for our youngest. I was hesitant not knowing anyone, but within just a few weeks I felt like my son had always been a part of this community. They love on the kiddos and have the perfect mix of play and learning time. This year I started working as an assistant teacher and have come to see that the community of teachers behind the scenes is just as strong. I`m so thankful for Little Elks Preschool.

All 3 of my kids went to Little Elks, and it was a truly wonderful experience! It prepared them for elementary school and taught them social skills in a loving Christian environment.

Little Elks is an amazing school. My son went through Little Elks in the 3` program and the 5 day enrichment class. He was more than prepared for Kindergarten. The staff work really hard to create engaging and fun educational activities without taking the play away. The atmosphere is fun, with a caring and loving feel to it. Everyone is treated like family. We still see a few teachers from there occasionally and they remember my son and he remembers them! What a great foundation they provided for my son!

Excellent school, this is the best experience for kids to get ready for Kindergarten. They treat their day as a school setting not a daycare, have a knowledgeable staff and a great family feel to their school!
