Staff Reviews

Miss Maddie testimonial holding a young baby

Working at Little Minds is unlike any other job I have had. I am truly excited to get up everyday to go to work and I love getting to learn more each day. We are an amazing team and work together to meet the needs of each child. Little Minds unique small group facility is what first attracted me and is what has made me grow a passion for early childhood education! In our small group facility children have more opportunities for individualized learning and connection with teachers & peers.
