From the Director:

Little Footprints Daycare believes that children are intuitive and intelligent. We lead students through several activities on any given day; such as, arts & crafts, story time, circle time, music & movement. However, we also allow students free time to work within different stations for more art, music, match, pre-literacy, science and movement activities.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

All of our instruction is based on the student's interest and level of understanding. Because our daycare age run from 6 weeks to school age, we tailor instruction to the student.
