We find joy working with children

Take a photograph of a typical day at Little Lukes and you can't help but notice smiling faces of young children! You'll hear the contagious laughter, the story telling in circles, the singing of familiar songs and much more. You'll observe children playing with games, learning through computers, role playing, reading and sharing, talking and giggling. You'll see fun with paint, brushes, blocks, books and crayons. You'll see babies and children crawling, standing, walking and running. You'll see children interacting with peers and adults. You'll see the display of proud artwork from each child hanging in each of the childcare classrooms.

What you will see is a stimulating, creative and fun environment.

You will also notice a great deal of learning occurring. Little Lukes incorporates education and fun together to promote learning and retain information.

The skills and knowledge your child will learn today play a major role in determining who they'll be tomorrow. That's why choosing Little Lukes for your child is one of the most important decisions you can make.
