More than day care

Little University Early Learning Center was founded in August of 2006. We truly enjoy being surrounded by young energetic children and wanted to provide a program that was more than just simple day care.  For this reason, we have created a warm, understanding environment with amazing enrichment programs which help your child nurture their natural curiosity and reach their full potential. You and You Child Will Enjoy Enriching & Educational Child Care at Little University!

Positive learning experiences

Little University Early Learning Center provides a well-balanced curriculum that focuses on educational child care and the importance of embracing diversity and preparing your children for their school years. The low student to teacher ratios ensures your child receives the attention they need to prosper in our curriculum.
