Little School is our free program for young children and their families. Offered every Tuesday - Thursday from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM during the school year, Little School provides place-based, hands-on education.
For the children of the kentucky mountains
Little School began as a pioneering service--one of the first early childhood programs of its kind, led by Mildred Mahoney. Indeed, when Head Start first formed, they visited our Little School as a model for the program. Now we have brought it back in a new, innovative format. We operate as a multi-age program and include families as well as children. We have partnered with the local head start, and a bus brings children directly to Little School once the morning program ends. At Little School, you will find friends, healthy food, exercise, and learning that is immersed in local cultural experiences and natural surroundings.
