Our child care center operates on the belief that every child is precious. It is our privilege to work with your child, always striving to promote cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. Little Learners has been in operation for more than 25 years and staffed by child care professionals who have  nearly 60 total years of work experience in the field. What makes us different is our working relationship with Washburn Tech students, who are enrolled in our Early Childhood Professional program. Together, we are building-up children, families and future child care workers.

Who Can Be a Little Learner?

Our child care center, on Washburn Tech's campus, primarily provides child care services for the staff and students of Washburn Tech and Washburn University. In addition, we welcome children of parents not affiliated with the Washburn famiily. Our convenient location, smaller staff/child ratios, affordable rates and educational environment make Little Learners an excellent choice when looking for child care. For more information about fees and enrollment, contact Washburn Tech by calling 785.670.3390 or send an email to tammy.schrickel@washburn.edu.

Facility Facts

The center is designed with learning centers such as art, manipulatives, block play, science, language arts and dramatic play where the children are in small groups. We also have large group times when the children listen to stories, sing songs and play active games. We have an outdoor playground for large motor development and a nutrition area with a full service kitchen to teach good eating habits.
