The Valley is Calling, Come and See...

Little Ed.

 Little Ed. Learning Center!
 We welcome you and your family to become a part of this program and part of our “Little Ed. Family”.
 
“Children are a gift from the Lord.”  -Psalm 127:3
 
The Little Ed. (Education) Learning Center was created in 2004 by a group of mothers looking for a place of learning grounded in Christianity for their preschool age children.  Green Valley Baptist Church agreed to sponsor a Center of care for children.  We believe Little Ed. Learning Center to be an extension of the home, here to provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment for a child to grow. 
 Little Ed. Learning Center has been granted a religiously exempt status from the State of Virginia.
  
The Center offers care and learning for Preschool age children (age 2 1/2 by September 30):
Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  
(Children must be fully toilet trained to be eligible for enrollment.) 
Pre-Kindergarten age children (4 and 5 year olds):
 Monday, Wednesday and Friday 
You can choose a half-day program from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. or a full-day program from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.   
 
        
Little Ed. Learning Center is located on the first floor of the Church.  Our facility includes many wonderful areas for learning and play including classrooms, discovery centers, a computer center, indoor playroom, and an open music and movement area along with a snack and lunch area.  All include age appropriate furnishings and equipment just right for your little one.  We also have access to a playground for our outdoor playtime.
 
 
 
Staff
Each staff member is qualified by education and/or experience to work with young children in a group setting.  All genuinely demonstrate a love of children and concern for their care, growth, and development.  Our staff must be certified annually to be free from any disabilities which would prevent them from caring for children.  Staff and volunteers must also abide by the same health practices as children who attend the Center.  All employees are trained and certified in First Aid.  The Center requires background checks for staff members and regular volunteers.  You can know your child will be loved, cared for, and encouraged to develop and better the skills needed in preparation for the next adventure in education…and we’ll all have fun too!
