Little Castle Learning & Development Center Re-Brands Center

Little Castle Learning Center is proud to announce a corporate branding change. The non-profit currently operates as Little Castle Learning & Development Center. The transition will take place as of October 24th, 2019.The re-branding initiative is primarily a logo change.

“This re-branding is intended to further professionalize our center and bring brand awareness to Little Castle as a leader in Early Childhood Education in Eddy County,” says Little Castle Learning Center Board President, Sandra Borges.

Little Castle Learning Center opened in 2015 as a nonprofit organization with a goal of providing the greater Artesia community the highest quality child-care in Eddy County. Today, Little Castle Learning Center is recognized by the State of New Mexico as the only 4 Star child-care center in Eddy County.

So, what is quality child-care and what is a 4 Star child-care center?

Quality child-care means play and active learning, along with a safe and caring environment, and strong relationships with our families and loving educators.

Little Castle is culturally and linguistically sensitive and responsive. We promote positive and supportive interactions with our children and families. Little Castle has low classroom ratios and provides families opportunities to engage in the classroom. Our educators are trained and certified to provide quality care and education.

In Spring 2019, fifteen Artesia Community members met to develop a Strategic Plan to not only support the expansion of Little Castle Learning Center so that more Artesia children can experience the highest quality child-care, but the plan also focuses on providing support to the entire Artesia child-care sector.

More broadly, the members of the Strategic Planning Task Force understood that not all young children are served by the child-care sector. In 2017, there were roughly 1,500 children under six years old in Artesia. Of those, 250 were newborn children. In 2022, those 250 infants will be five years old and most of them will be entering the Artesia Public School system. Little Castle Learning Center is looking forward to the opportunity to educate and transform early childhood education in Eddy County, so that our children are prepared to lead the future.

“We are looking forward to working with all of our community stakeholders to implement programming and services that will help children and parents. We want our kids to have a great educational foundation. The team at Little Castle Learning Center is dedicated to the education and well-being of the children they serve,” says Executive Director Siobhan Coffelt.

Little Castle Learning Center is hosting an Open House October 24th, 2019 at 6:30pm. Guest will tour the facility and meet the staff, as well as have the opportunity to win some wonderful door prizes!
