Little Learners at Washburn Tech was created to serve a distinct population. Our on-site child care center primarily provides child care services for the schools staff and students, although we welcome children of parents not affiliated with Washburn Tech as well.
Since our center is a child care lab staffed by not only child care professionals but also Washburn Tech Child Care students, we have a unique ability to provide much smaller staff/child ratios than other child care facilities which provides more individualized attention for each child. The Child Care students are receiving academic instruction and then being able to immediately employ their new knowledge and skills in the child care center. The students will plan learning experiences to help develop each childs physical, cognitive, social, and emotional skills.
Our center is proud to have knowledgeable, highly trained caregivers who are committed to providing a safe, warm, nurturing environment in which the children may learn, grow, and reach their full potential. The team carefully evaluates staff and student performance to insure that the children are being provided age-appropriate, enriching learning experiences that meet each childs developmental level.
Our facility also partners with other Washburn Tech programs. Students from other Washburn Tech programs, such as nursing students learning about pediatric care, may occasionally observe in our center. All employees, students, and volunteers are carefully screened, and their information is kept on file.
The center is set up with learning centers such as art, computers, manipulatives, block play, science, language arts, and dramatic play where the children are in small groups. We also have large group times when the children listen to stories, sing songs, and play active games. We have an outdoor playground for large motor development and a nutrition area with a full service kitchen to teach good eating habits.

The goal of Washburn Tech Child Care Center is to provide a safe, nurturing environment where children can learn and grow at his or her own pace.
Developmentally appropriate activities are provided for both structured and free choice activities. We strive to foster an environment where children can develop a positive self-concept through their interactions with staff as well as their fellow playmates.
We believe in the dignity of each child and work to instill that respect for others in the children cared for at our center.
