Where learning is FUN! (for ages 2 to 6)

With more than 25 years serving the community, Big & Little is a great place for your child to learn, grow, and make friends. The state-licensed center hosts up to 103 children, ages 2 to 6. Our professionally-trained staff provide a fun, engaging, and educational environment. Six, kid-friendly classrooms are designed for 16–18 children, based on the overall age of the children served.

Children at Big & Little enjoy the facility’s full-sized gym, Spray Park, for a summertime treat with special water/play activity areas just for younger children, and a private, fenced playground. Big & Little offers convenient child care from 6:30 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday, year-round, excluding major holidays. Full and part-time schedule options as well as a morning preschool help meet the needs of working families.

About Our Program

At Big & Little, your child is provided with a warm, nurturing, stimulating, and challenging environment that promotes social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth. Our goal is to help your child experience the joy of learning, instill a sense of curiosity, and provide an atmosphere of discovery and exploration. Big & Little stresses activities that facilitate language development, increase sensory awareness and enhance an understanding of the environment. Independence, self-confidence, and positive self-esteem are encouraged.


Our theme-based curriculum provides a wide variety of activities and interest areas. Cooperative play is encouraged while meeting developmental needs. Our daily schedule provides ample opportunity for active and quiet activities as well as both fine and gross motor activities.
