Early Learning Center - Dedicated to providing quality care for infants through children 9 years of age in a warm and welcoming family atmosphere.

Our Mission

Our center is a full time, year round program that is dedicated to providing quality care for infants 6 weeks through children 9 years of age. We believe that the first five years of a child’s life are the most critical for providing an environment that will stimulate a love of learning and a self confidence that will last them a life time.

More About Our Programs

Opened in 1996, LITTLE BRITCHES is dedicated to providing a high-quality early learning environment for infants (6 weeks old) through children 8 years of age. In September of 1999, LITTLE BRITCHES was the first child care center in Jacksonville to receive the A.P.P.L.E. accreditation; we have been through accreditation three times; 2002, 2006 and 2011. (Reaccreditation lasts five years.) In 2016 we chose to use Guiding Stars of Duval Program as our quality program instead of seeking reaccreditation through A.P.P.L.E.

A state funded one-half day Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program (VPK) is available for those children entering kindergarten the following year. LITTLE BRITCHES is licensed and regulated by the State of Florida. The license is displayed in the hall by the water fountain. Our license number is C04DU0269.

We have chosen to participate in the Guiding Stars of Duval Program which is the quality rating improvement system for Jacksonville designed to help parents choose quality early learning care for their children and help child care providers improve the quality of early learning care they offer. We have a Four Star Rating (****).  We have chosen to use Guiding Stars of Duval Program as our quality program instead of seeking reaccreditation through A.P.P.L.E.
