3K PROGRAM 

High quality child care is an essential part of a seamless, integrated system that supports early learning and care for children. 

The integration of child care and early learning enhances education results by providing a continuum of care and education for children aged 0 to 12, creating a focus on healthy child development and positive outcomes for children and families through coordinated local system management.

Little Minds Matter plays an essential role in the development of your children. We not only prepare your child for future academia, but for life!

In our Monday – Friday, full day preschool program, we focus on the fundamental steps of learning, and life. Our goals focus on education and of course, play. The educational piece activates background knowledge on math, phonics, reading, science, reading, and social studies. Structure, preplanned play flourishes creative thinking, problem solving, social skills and the use of imagination.
