We also operate the Li'l Lumberjacks Learning Center located in the Pine Tree Plaza, Suite 20, 707 Hwy 33 S. for children 6 weeks old to the first day of kindergarten. 

Notice: Your child should go through Early Childhood Screening between the ages of 3 and 4. This is a quick, fun and free check of how children are doing between the ages of 44 and 60 months. It identifies, at an early stage, possible learning or health concerns so that children can get help and be ready when it comes time to start school. Please give Kayla a call to schedule an appointment: 879-9291.
