The staff members at Little Jewels take pride in making families happy. Although we have many employees across our three locations, we all feel and act like one big family ourselves. We stand by our promise to make sure that your child is in a safe, loving, and nurturing environment. We know, too, that little things can make a big difference in the eyes of a child and their family. That's why we provide a variety of special child development center services for children and families in Bloomington-Normal. 

All our facilities have secured entryways, and 100% of our staff members are CPR and first aid certified, ensuring the safety of enrolled children. Each Little Jewels location houses a cafeteria with an on-site cook as well as computers in the classrooms. Children can enjoy weekly music with Developing Melodies or gymnastics with Iron Coyote at no extra cost. On hot summer days, kids can also make use of our outdoor play area with sprinklers. We also offer a sign language program through Signing Time.

Parents can benefit from Parents Night Out babysitting services, multiple payment options for tuition (weekly and bi-weekly), and automatic checking or savings withdrawal or credit card payments through our Brightwheel app. Families can also purchase milk, bread, and stamps.

Little Jewels Centers

Facilities

Little Jewels Learning Center is designed to be a fun place filled with activity, adventure, and exploration! Our environment incorporates a love of children and positive energy, while our vibrant space and state-of-the-art equipment invite children to learn and play. Great care is taken to meet the needs of the children throughout the day, and we’ve included details like child-sized water fountains at every location. The main entrance to Little Jewels Learning Centers provides both easy access and the security of an electronic lock system. Entry is only permitted upon visual identification and greeting by a staff member. All visitors are required to show ID and are escorted to other areas within the center.

Classrooms

Learning center classrooms are identified with a creature so children will recognize their classroom. The walls also feature space to post art and projects created by the children. Each classroom includes a sink and toilet, as well as exterior windows that provide plenty of natural light. Glassed-in windows in each classroom allow children and teachers to view activity in the other rooms. Each exterior door is also equipped with a coded security lock.

Enclosed Play Areas

Children at Little Jewels will enjoy the colorful equipment designed to encourage the development of large motor skills. Each facility also features a beautiful water park for the children to play in, a bike path, and a covered patio that will allow all children shade while outside.

All-Purpose Rooms & Party Rental

Each center has an all-purpose room. Daily, these rooms become gyms for the children. When we have featured community partners, it also becomes an activity space. Each room is a different creature at each location. The following rooms act as each center’s all-purpose rooms:

Husky Room – Williamsburg Drive
Zebra Room – Oakland Avenue
Shark Room – Evergreen Boulevard

These all-purpose rooms are also available to rent out for birthday parties, baby and wedding showers, graduation celebrations, or other special occasions. Parties include the use of the room, cafeteria, kitchen, and playground. We will even provide a Little Jewels staff member to be on location during your event!
