Early Learning Centers

Promoting quality education, superior care and safety by implementing policies and best practices!

The Early Learning Center was born out of the Early Head Start-Child Care partnership in 2015 between Head Start/Early Head Start and Early Learning Center formerly known as Happy Days Child Care. The Early Learning Center operates at 5 locations in Little Dixie’s tri county service area. The Early Learning Center is a mirror image of the regular Early Head Start program operated by Little Dixie. We serve children ages birth to three years old with the exception of the Broken Bow Early Learning Center and the ages are birth to 12 years old. The Early Learning Center serves 112 children and their families.

  • Each Early Learning Center carries a 3 STAR rating from the Department of Human Services Child Care Licensing.
  • The focus of the Early Learning Centers is based on Early Head Start Performance Standards and the Agency Mission statement.
“ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN CHLD CARE!…. Share everything…don’t hit people…put things back where you found them…clean up your own mess…wash your hands before you eat…paint, sing and dance…hold hands and stick together…Be aware of wonder!"
