Phyllis Wheatley Education Center

  • The Phyllis Wheatley Educational Center has been in business since 1986.
  • With several years in business, we have provided quality childcare services for preschool children in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.
  • The Centers are operated by Little Dimples Enterprises, Inc. and are probably the best kept, quality child care secret in Baltimore.
  • Over the years, Phyllis Wheatley has grown to one of Baltimore's most respected providers of quality childcare.
  • At Phyllis Wheatley we feature a unit approach to learning based on the total development of the child.
  • The planned program of weekly units help to enrich your child's development socially, emotionally, physically, creatively and intellectually.
  • At Phyllis Wheatley, our curriculum is an on-going process. Although it is well planned and lays a strong foundation for a child's future learning, there is room for modification to meet the needs of your child.
