Little Village Learning Collective exists to build up the whole child by providing hands-on experiences, fostering heart-centered teaching, and developing a lifelong love for learning.
Little Village began in 2017 on the central coast of California, when I was graced by the friendship of a group of moms who were passionate about connecting with their children in the early years of learning. We shared a desire to preserve our children's natural wonder and curiosity, while simultaneously creating space for more focused learning. Our passion and desire to intentionally raise excited learners and grow kind hearts banded us together on an unexpected journey. In the fall, our first co-op was born.
The group graciously put their trust in me to write our curriculum and teach our kids. I was undoubtedly in my wheelhouse. The joy of teaching and coming up with lessons that sparked an eagerness to learn for these little ones was beyond life-giving. As time went on, this new found love and passion became the driving force to creating a way for you to experience the same magic of learning in your homes.
Now, reaching beyond our local "village", we hope to inspire and equip you to bring learning to life in a similar way. Our materials will help create a learning experience that is rich in content and will bring meaningful connection between you, your learner, and the world. We can't wait to journey with you!
