We are an early childhood learning experience for children between the ages of three months and 5 years. This includes our extensive Fort Myers VPK program.
We offer full-time and part-time programs, as well as, summer and winter programs in order to meet all of your family’s needs. We know all too well, how difficult decisions are when they concern your children and we are here to help you find the answers. We welcome the chance to answer your questions and discuss your concerns.
Whether preschool, VPK, child care or infant care, each group has their own classroom and teacher. A child’s teacher is who you will communicate with every day, participate in teacher conferences and start your child’s day. All the VPK (Voluntary Prekindergarten Education) and preschool teachers get to know all the children, and you will meet and get to know all of them!

Positive Discipline Policy
Little Learners’ positive disciple policy is aimed at developing mutually respectful relationships. Positive Discipline teaches adults to employ kindness and firmness at the same time, and is neither punitive nor permissive.
What Preschool Parents Are Saying
To whom it may concern:
I am writing this letter expressing my respect and gratitude for the impact that Susie Howard has had on my young daughter, Kaelyn Smith’s, life. Two years ago, my husband and I were looking around for a daycare/VPK that could meet our expectations, not only scholastically, but emotionally. We walked into the school and were greeted by a kind, funny, and extremely positive Administrator whom immediately gained my trust while making us feel like part of the family.
Over the next two years, I became familiar with seeing Susie in the morning and she became one of my daughter’s most favorite people in the school! She was involved in every aspect of Kaelyn’s first experience of school and set the bar quite high for anyone to follow as she moves up, next month, into Kindergarten.
It is my strong belief that Kaelyn’s love of school and learning can greatly be attributed to the thankless efforts of Susie Howard! She is an inspiration and my youngest daughter, Gia, will be attending school wherever Ms. Susie Howard is in a couple years! I wish there were more like her in our children’s worlds these days!
To Whom It May Concern,
Ms. Susie Howard is one of the best Early Childhood Educators I have ever met. When we brought our adopted child to school, she helped coordinate his transition into school and to make him feel comfortable. I have seen her in action with the classes on many occasions and was impressed with her organization, compassion, sense of humor, passion for learning and positive attitude. She has an amazing understanding of how to relate to children and how to facilitate their cognitive growth and development. I would highly recommend Ms. Susie to any school or parent looking for top quality child care.
