Your kids deserve the best.

A quality learning center shouldn’t cost more than your house.

At Littlebugs Learning Leaf, we know finding a highly rated learning center is really hard. We believe our kids deserve a place where they can grow and that doesn’t break the bank for you.

That’s why we started Littlebugs!

In a world consumed by screens, Littlebugs is proud to be a Nature Based Learning Center.

While we’re not against the digital world, we’re big believers kids grow the most when interacting with the actual world around them.

To do that, we provide areas for them to get a little dirty and interact with the natural world. Areas like our on-site garden where our friends help us grow fruits and vegetables (that we then use in their daily meals). Or our playground made of natural resources. Or nature walks around our property to see the geese, horses, and other animals we call our neighbors.

The screens may take over eventually, but for now, we’re excited to teach your kids about the natural world around them.

Partnering with you to teach and develop your kids is a huge responsibility.

At Littlebugs, we’re proud to say we…
