Opened in 1996, LITTLE BRITCHES is dedicated to providing quality care 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.)
We also 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 believe that the learning gained in the early years of a child’s life is critical as a solid foundation for future success. At LITTLE BRITCHES, we believe that children also learn through play. Intermingled throughout the curriculum (described below), your child will have many child directed learning center play experiences to help develop the skills that are needed in the years to come.
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.
