The Little

Our diverse-by-design early learning program is open to refugee, immigrant, and U.S.-born children. Our teaching staff come from all over the world, giving children and families an opportunity to see their own language and culture reflected at school. 

We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Montessori on Wheels. Between their innovative and impactful approach to early learning, and our deep relationships the East Colfax community,

we KNOW this is going to be extraordinary. 

The Little Village is on a brief planning pause, as we work to build out a fantastic new Montessori-style curriculum, family programming, and staff development training. We plan to reopen in early 2024.

Please reach out to for questions and pre-enrollment options.
