"the child's own instincts and powers furnish the material and give the starting point for all education...." John Dewey


"We are a community of learners committed to fostering positive relationships with children and their families in a safe, nurturing and inspiring environment. 


We honor and respect each child's unique skills and interests and together enable them to grow to their fullest potential.  

Our Philosophy - our Program


Little Friends Family Child Care is a German-English bilingual, play-based program, offering child-centered, nurturing care to children 12 months and older, fostering cooperative play skills and social-emotional development with a low 1:3 teacher-child ratio. We nourish children’s interests and provide a cozy homelike, natural learning environment including a garden and animals, where children can play, engage with nature, experience their senses, art, music & books.
