Little Learners Childcare

DCFS logo


Little Learners is a full day childcare for children 6 weeks to five years old.  Our facility is located within the Lakeview Fitness Center in a secure wing. Childcare operating hours are from 6:30 am – 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday.  

Our program offers a relaxed and casual setting geared to the needs and interests of each child who is a part of our program. We provide children with high-quality, fun experiences that will inspire each child to grow to his or her potential. We embrace individual differences and special abilities, as well as numerous family cultural patterns.

Each of our five classrooms display a warm and brightly colored environment with lofts and child-sized furniture. Our outdoor area includes two playgrounds, a walking path, and nearby parks for children to enjoy. Age-appropriate field trips are offered for children, 3-5 years, as well as access to our zero-depth indoor pool.

Our qualified staff are sensitive and flexible to meet the physical and emotional needs of the children as well as their parents. Our staff work as a team to develop, lead, and organize activities. Little Learners Childcare is licensed by the Department of Children and Family Services and based on compliance with their licensing standards, the Illinois Child Care Act, and by recommendation from the Lake County Health Department, State Fire Marshall, and the local Fire Department.
