Academy for Little Learners


Academy for Little Learners was established in 2008 to nurture the childhood experience for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. After a career of working with young children I wanted to create an environment that would build a positive relationship between staff, children and parents. Our staff works as a team to ensure that children’s and families needs are being met on a personal level in the areas of academics, socialization, health and nutrition, problem solving skills and, most importantly, emotional well being. We look forward to learning about you and your family!

Mission and Philosophy

Our mission to our children and parents is to provide a unique childcare experience. The early childhood years reveal milestones on an almost daily basis and Academy for Little Learners will help to maximize these moments by presenting a well developed curriculum in accordance with Madison Metropolitan School District requirements for kindergarten admittance, providing extracurricular activities that nurture the whole child, and by hiring and retaining quality teachers/staff that have a commitment to the development of children.

Our philosophy on guidance is based upon Love and Logic. Aspects of this approach  include giving the children choices in decision making to give them a feeling of ownership in the classroom and having natural consequences for the choices that they make.
