My daughter is a year and a half and has been here since she was 7 months old. Sign language, communication skills and so much more. I've had absolutely no problems with making sure she only had breast milk until a certain age, they were very easy to work with that and have always been great! Highly recommend!!

My two children have gone to Little People's Playhouse since they were 12 weeks of age. They are both now 8 & 9. I couldn't have had any better of an experience. My children have always been treated as if they were family and the owners (Julie & Ben). In addition, the academic curriculum is EXCEPTIONAL! There are structured plans and monitoring from the baby room through the school age room.

The staff is warm and friendly and most importantly they are trained and educated. The center has cameras in the classrooms, which made me feel much more comfortable and it was CLEAN. The director always seemed to be on top of things. I always felt like my kids were happy and well cared for--I would, and have recommended Little People's Playhouse to anyone looking for childcare.

Our children attended Little People's since they were 3 months old and we had nothing but great experiences. Julie is wonderful and communication was never an issue. The thing I liked best about LPP was their focus on education. Both of our children were well prepared for kindergarten and much of that can be attributed to LPP's curriculum. I highly recommend them.

We have had our children at Little People's Playhouse for the past 2.5 years and have been very pleased with the care provided. Our almost 3-year-old has learned SO much and is quite advanced in his development, with much credit to the structured, learning environment LPP provides. They are engaged in learning but fun activities and the caregivers are sitting on the floor or at the table interacting with the children.
