Programs

Providing a well-balanced curriculum for your child!

Little University Child Care Center has taken great care in designing a curriculum that will help your child explore their curious nature while also feeding their thirst for knowledge.  We believe that it is important to reach children while they are young to help encourage their natural abilities without stifling their creativeness.

Your child will learn and grow at Little University!

We offer year round programs that will keep your children active and engaged both physically and mentally.

Program 1: Preschool Ages 2 – 3

Our preschool child care program is based on the belief that children are inquisitive by nature and want to investigate their surroundings.  We nurture this by providing them with stimulating activities designed to meet their social, emotional and intellectual needs.

It is important to us that your children learn through interacting and exploring with our staff and the other children in their class.  The children are encouraged to choose activities on their own from our interest centers.

These activities include dramatic play, blocks, science, puzzles, math games, reading and art.  Our preschool program also features “circle time” which is used to incorporate the theme of the week through the use of stories, finger plays and songs.

Program 2: Pre-K Ages 3 – 4

Our Pre-K day care program is offered Monday through Friday from 7:30 am – 6:30 pm both full and part-time.  In this program children are prepared for Kindergarten by our experienced instructors who focus on reading and math skills.  All students participating in this program will be given a workbook that they will use in class.

Instructors will also use letter books, supplementary manipulative activities, games and work sheets to help prepare children for entry into Kindergarten.  Children enrolled in our Pre-K classes will also be allowed to choose activities on their own from many interest centers.  These activities include dramatic play, blocks, science, puzzles, math games and art.

Our Tae Kwon Do classes help your child in so many ways!

Program 3: Kindergarten Age 5

Our Kindergarten program is offered Monday through Friday from 7:30 am – 6:30 pm both full and part-time.  Children enrolled in our Kindergarten program receive individual attention from our experienced instructors.  We believe that providing children with individual attention while allowing them to learn at their own pace is the key to our success.

We also include a phonics program in conjunction with a reading and writing workbook specifically chosen for our kindergarten class.  We also incorporate the weekly theme into the areas being studied along with art, science, social studies, music and creative dramatics.

Summer Day Camp: Ages 5 – 12

We know how hard it can be to find reliable, consistent  and educational child care during the summer months.  To meet this need we offer a summer day camp.  Children enrolled in our summer day camp will continue to study reading, math, dance, writing, computer science and music.

Your child will also be participating in fun activities such as arts & crafts which include pencil and charcoal drawing instruction in addition to water color and oil painting.  Water activities are also included along with indoor and outdoor activities.

Junior Summer Camp

Just like the “big kids” summer camp but designed more around the little kids idea of fun.  While the older siblings and children get their fun of getting to go to “summer camp” the little ones have one all of their own!  While still learning, your child will get to enjoy all the fun the older kids are having but at an age appropriate level.

Available Monday – Friday full or part time from 7:30am to 6:30pm.

Learning the piano with a friend is always more fun!

Before and After School Program

Designed to care for your children before and after school when work hours do not allow you tend to your child(ren).  Your child can be picked up and dropped off by your child’s school bus giving you peace of mind knowing where your child is at and that they are in good hands.

Holiday Program – School Age Children

The Holiday Program is designed to cover the care of your school age child when you have to be away while the school system has a workshop or other days off.
