The Little Learner Children’s Academy was founded in 2009 as an in-home daycare. After experiencing flaws and inconsistencies with other daycare and child care centers, Melissa and Zarvan took it upon themselves to develop, build, and create a learning academy and curriculum that promoted a nurturing, loving, and safe environment. Both Melissa and Zarvan have 18 years of experience in the child care and academic fields, and are parents themselves. So, they understand how crucial it is for a child’s development to have a steady routine with learning exercises that cater to each child’s particular needs.

With the values of safety, love, and nurture, Little Learner Children’s Academy has proven to be a healthy and reliable place for children that need pre-schooling and other child care activities. This has lead to growth and expansion including a new facility in Crest Hill that opened in 2017.

At the Little Learner Children’s Academy, it is our mission to instill within the children, love and respect while providing a productive environment that is conducive to learning and a healthy one, both physically and spiritually. At Little Learner Children’s Academy, we are firm believers that the children learn by doing. We conduct our programs with your child’s growth and development as the main focus and the programs we have in place give your children experience working as individuals, in small groups, and large groups to help them develop cognitive skills, and to develop physically, socially, and spiritually.
