Little Friends Early Education and Preschool

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Little Friends Early Education and Preschool! Located in North Peoria, just a few minutes from Dunlap, our mission is to foster your child’s natural love of learning with developmental activities for all ages. Our large, park-like playgrounds are the perfect places to dig in and learn all about the environment, and our art studio and music exploration room offer endless opportunities for imaginative and creative playtime. Little scientists will love experimenting in the STEM-inspired science lab, and the growing readers nook is the ideal spot to curl up with a good book. Stop by to meet our dedicated staff and see what we’re all about.  We're just off of Route 40 on Alta Road in a quiet residential area.
