About Us

Our Philosophy

At The LittleRiders Preschool Academy, we believe preschool is the foundation in the journey of a lifelong love of learning.  We believe that children learn best when they are in a safe loving environment and are allowed to learn through guided play, embedded with rich experiences and language. We create enjoyable opportunities to help them build confidence in their uniqueness while learning to socialize, make friends and explore the world around them. We value total body wellness, and incorporate healthy lifestyles, nutrition and exercise practices into our daily schedule. Because of our unique sports centered facility we are allowed the opportunity to experience a myriad of different sports daily.  It is our goal to foster happy, healthy, unique and kind young members of our community.

What We Do


Each day of the week we focus on different aspects of sports - whether that be fundamentals, nutrition, safety, or performance, we got you covered. We believe in the connection between the mind and the body. Thanks to our amazing facility, we are able to join learning alongside a healthy lifestyle. 


Areas of focus:

Court Sports

Field Sports

Ice Sports


Health & Nutrition


We use a hands-on play-based curriculum. This research-based model fosters; self-regulation, focused attention, creativity, independence, all while playing and interacting with peers.

The small classroom setting allows rich teacher student interaction and builds a strong sense of community among the students.

Qualified Staff

With decades of experience in education and a passion for cultivating bright minds and strong bodies, our staff is dedicated to each individual child.

Before finding my passion in preschool, I was a substitute teacher and reading specialist in Jefferson County. I am a proud mother of a college athlete and a beautiful high school daughter. 

I am so excited to start this new adventure! Nothing brings me more joy than seeing a child learn and grow. I look forward to meeting all of our new families!
