About Our School
For 29 years, Li'l Tykes Childcare & Learning Center in Springfield, Delaware County, has been providing excellent, nurturing childcare through a learning and values centered environment. Family owned, Li'l Tykes Childcare knows how to make school a home away from home. Using a creative play philosophy, each of our programs focuses on the power to nurture and teach each group through discovery, exploration and learning activities fit for their stage of development. From six weeks to five years old, every child at our center is surrounded by age appropriate, stimulating curriculum, focusing on cognitive,
social, physical and emotional growth.
"The teachers at L'il Tykes have helped us raise her to be a sweet, kind little girl. It's never easy trusting someone to take care of your child each day, but I am so happy with the care she has received at L'il Tykes. Each day, I can't wait to see all of the exciting things that are in her backpack to see what she worked on that day."
"My son has significant ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder. Li'l Tykes commitment to him and seeing him be successful did wonders for his self-esteem. It was a gift to our family, and really transformational for us and how we learned to lean on them as an extension of our resources and "team" for our son. "
"Each morning, we are greeted by the staff that knows every child by name - no matter what class they are in. I feel my children are cared for. My eldest looks forward to school, wants to do homework, is constantly talking about her teachers and what happened in school."
"My son has been there since he was 4 months old. My son LOVES Ms. Renace & has a big smile for her every morning. He has never once cried at drop-off & seems to want to stay longer when I pick him up! Ms. Courtney, the director, is very hands on. I see her all the time helping kids, popping into the baby room to comfort a child, & saying hello to parents."
