From The Executive Director

Dear Parent,
It is with great joy that this year I opened the Little Learning Preschool. As a mother of two, I know what it’s like to search for the very best setting for my children whether it’s daycare, preschool or regular school. It isn’t easy. There is a lot to consider. And because every child is different, there is not a one-size-fits all approach.
To help you get to know the Little Learning Preschool, below please find our Mission Statement and What We Believe. If you like what you see, please give me a call and I will give you a personal tour of our newly renovated facility and show you our exciting preschool program–one that will motivate your child and inspire their imagination.

Yours Truly,
Susana Alvarez
