It takes a village…

For over 55 years, we have partnered with families to raise Kalamazoo’s youngest—together. The Learning Village believes in establishing early relationships as infants, a safe place to learn and grow as toddlers and independent development through pre-school.

Infant Care

Focused on individual feeding and sleeping schedules and balancing active and quiet play.


Supporting independent choice, emotional, physical and cognitive development along with establishing daily routines.

Preschool Program

We build the tools your child needs to express themselves in language, communication, art, music and movement.

Our curriculum

At The Learning Village, we use the Michigan Department of Education approved HighScope curriculum. With HighScope’s evident-based research, the teaching believes that by fostering child creativity, confidence, and independence, we take the learning process beyond traditional academic subjects and prepare children for later schooling and future success in life.

This active learning approach to early education achieves powerful, positive results.

Our goals for your children

  • To become independent, responsible, and confident problem solvers and decision makers — ready for school and ready for life.
  • To gain knowledge and skills in important academic, social, emotional, and physical domains through active involvement with people, materials, events, and ideas
  • To learn to plan many of their own activities, carry them out, and talk with others about what they have done and what they have learned
  • To develop strong executive function and self-regulation skills that will last through adulthood
