Welcome to Little Worlds Learning Center!
Little Worlds Learning Center is a Bilingual Spanish-English childcare facility that fosters Early Learning as well as Christian Values. We cater to children from 12 months to school aged. We offer full & part-time care, as well as an out of school program (also referred to as before and after school care) and drop ins!
Our philosophy is that children learn through a Prepared Environment and Play! We believe children should be given opportunities to develop their potential. We see children as powerful, creative, beautiful, competent, curious with an ambitious desire to learn.
With that in mind, our team provides carefully curated Reggio-Inspired routines and activities, plenty of developmental experiences and opportunities for children to decide what materials to work with, to be themselves and to have fun with their friends and teachers!

We see the child as powerful, creative, beautiful, competent, curious and full of potential, with ambitious desires to learn. Our team provides carefully developed routines with plenty of developmental experiences and opportunities for children to decide what materials to work with and for them to be themselves. Learning should be challenging but fun. This is achieved with interaction with friends and teacher during daily activities. It is important that learning is accomplished in a loving, caring, safe and positive environment. We also believe children that learn a second language will have a distinct advantage to those that speak one language only. It opens up the world to new cultures at a young age and the world as children mature. It has been proven that people that speak a second language can more easily learn a third, fourth and more later in life.
