Our Preschool Learning Philosophy


As an early childhood learning center, Little Footsteps Academy LLC believes in the importance of all children having the opportunity to learn and explore in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. It is our primary goal to provide a classroom climate that fosters feelings of security and joy. Additionally, our childcare program encourages students to become creative, independent, and responsible individuals; thereby planting early seeds for lifelong success.  



It is our Mission...


To nurture each aspect of a child's development.


To value parents and staff as partners in each child's education and care.


To provide a balanced program meeting the total needs of the child to grow developmentally- socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively.


To value a child's play experience as an avenue of learning.


To provide developmentally appropriate early learning programs for all children regardless of gender, race, creed, nationality, ethnic background, or religion.


To develop positive, nurturing, trusting relationships with each child, their families, and God.


To provide a safe, stimulating, hands-on, small-group environment in which children can confidently interact with others to increase their abilities and knowledge.


To nurture the professional development of our staff so that each team member may stay informed about current research and developments in the field early childhood education.
