Little Learner Children’s Academy was founded in June 2009 by Melissa and Zarvan, as an in home group daycare out of their home. After gaining experience of over 18 years and education in the child care field and parents themselves of 3 children, they found many flaws with the way in which the centers were operated, and the enormous cost parents were paying for below average childcare. Our goal is to create a safe, loving and nurturing environment that makes parents feel comfortable while they are at work, while ensuring their children are educated and prepared for the future. We also wanted to make sure this could be done for the working families of the Channahon/Minooka Community and the surrounding area.

In 2014, Melissa and Zarvan decided to take their vision to the next level, and located a building in Channahon IL. She knew by applying the principles she founded during the operation of the in-home group childcare and previous experiences working at childcare centers, she could project the same principles on to a larger group of families, and make an impact on more children and their families. The preschool facility Little Learner Children’s Academy opened in August of 2014 for children ages 2-12 year olds. Parents enjoy the creative environment that is provided and appreciate the quality of care their child is receiving. With the help of wonderful staff, the Channahon childcare center is the place to be. Currently offering AM/PM Preschool, Before and After School, and Summer Camp (LLCA Kids Connection) for K-5th grade.

Currently a second location has opened in August 2015 in the Minooka/Channahon area serving children ages infants- 5 years olds and in-progress a Plainfield, IL location will be opening soon.The future of expanding Little Learner Children’s Academy, LLC is very bright and we look forward to expanding in the future.

We are excited about the current status and future of Little Learner Children’s Academy and LLCA Kids Connection, and want each and every family to know we understand that your child is your most precious gift in life. Caring for your child and helping your child learn and grow through our preschool program is an honor and a blessing. We promise to provide care for your child in a safe, healthy, and caring environment. We built our center based on this principle and will continue to work hard and improve so that your child has the best child care experience possible.

We believe that we must all work together to teach our children how to behave appropriately. We guide the behavior of the children entrusted to us through positive methods such as modeling and helping them to learn the language necessary to express their feelings.

We try to create a environment that is not just school, but a second home to the children as they learn.

Our greatest hope for the children in our care and us is that we will set the example for them to follow to allow them to reach their highest potential.

We are a proud non franchise/non corporate center family owned family school of learning.
