Little Friends Child Care & Kindergarten

  • Little Friends has been providing care for over 25 years.
  • Through those years, we have built a program based on the knowledge and experience we have obtained.
  • We believe that each child has the right to develop to his or her fullest potential, not only intellectually but, socially, emotionally, and physically as well.
  • At Little Friends, we strive to create an atmosphere that allows the "total child" to develop.
  • Our theory is that in order for a child to learn, he or she must be progressively challenged.
  • We design our activities with that in mind, starting with the simple challenges and then moving to those that are more complex.
  • Our activities are geared towards the individual needs, abilities and interests of each child.
  • We also aim for a high rate of success for each child so as to promote a positive outlook on the learning process.
