Programs and Activities for Your Child
At Little Learners Day Care LLC, our philosophy is to help your child grow and learn in a positive, caring atmosphere while building their self-esteem and confidence so they can grow up to be the best he or she can be.
Your child will love our friendly, safe environment and the variety of programs and activities we offer.
We do not discriminate on basis of race, color, sex, creed, handicaps, age, political persuasion, or national origin.
It is our intention to provide quality childcare. Our center meets or exceeds all guidelines and regulations set by the state. Our staff is chosen for their knowledge of early childhood, situational principles, and the individual child.
Our educational component is planned weekly based upon units of concentration. Included are activities that incorporate the following: self-esteem, interaction with peers and adult communication skills, muscle development and outdoor, group and individual, directed and free activities.
Breakfast, lunch, and P.M. snack are provided on a daily basis. Meals are prepared on premises. Posted menus reflect a 25-day cycle and are USDA approved. Meals are served in a modified family style. Tables, chairs, and utensils are provided to the child.
Balanced activities, protection from fatigue, balanced meals, and outdoor playtime are provided to promote the good health of your child. Each child is observed for symptoms of illness. In the event of your child's illness, injury or exposure to a communicable disease, you will be notified. Our staff is trained in first aid.
Primary means of discipline for children over 2 is redirection or removal from an activity. Corporal punishment, verbal abuse or threats, withholding or forcing meals, restricting movement by binding or confronting in a small space, and any punishment of children under 3 or for lapses in toilet training are prohibited.

Tips for Parents
Before you enroll:
- Come in to see the center and bring your child. Let your child join the other children as it will make him or her more comfortable and give you time to view the center and ask questions
- Talk to your child about the center - the other children, the toys, what he or she may do, etc
On your child's first day:
- Give yourself a little extra time so you are relaxed and not rushed
- Let your child know beforehand what time you will return
- If your child cries, be gentle and reassuring but be firm and don't forget that important goodbye hug and kiss
Summer at Little Learners
During the summer, we are slightly less academic in our approach. We try to create something of a day camp atmosphere. We have music and rhythm activities, arts and crafts, and organized games. We also go on nature hikes and visit area parks and playgrounds, libraries, and museums. We take a field trip once a week and an all-day field trip once a month. Our summer field trips in past years have included Iverson, Bukkot, Collins, Mead and Jordan Parks, Green Bay New Zoo, Appleton Children's Museum, Discovery Zone, Rainbow Falls, Bay Beach Park, Marshfield Zoo, and South Park in Waupaca.
We offer supervision, companionship, organization, and variety as an answer to those, "I'm bored! What's there to do, Mom?" blues!
We think summers at Little Learners are safe and fun.
