An in-home Montessori Preschool
As owners and teachers of Little Lea, we have worked with children and families in various settings for the past 25 years, in addition to raising three daughters of our own. It is our hope that you will explore what Little Lea has to offer and consider becoming part of our extended family!
Providing a home environment
Little Lea operates out of our home located in the heart of Harrodsburg, Kentucky, at 212 E. Lexington St. We are 2 blocks away from Main Street and the Public Library. We offer nurture and learning for children 3 years and above. We are operating Monday-Friday, January to December, with the exception of various holidays, vacation and summer schedules. We are closed in the month of July.
Incorporating a unique learning experience
We have designed a Montessori learning environment within our home for the purpose of allowing children 3 years and above to encounter their amazing world while discovering their own unique and limitless potential. Find out more about Montessori here!
Living out a story with a name
The name ‘Little Lea’ is taken from the childhood home of one our favorite authors, C.S. Lewis. While listening to his biography we were captured by the way he referred to his childhood home with great fondness. It was the epitome of all that was calm, mature and secure. There were times of solitude, places for adventure and unrestricted access to books! The author describes his childhood as a time of “humdrum happiness.” His early life in the house appeared to be insulated from anything that was detrimental and nurtured by all that was steady, constant, and beneficial: an ordered tranquility. It is our hope that we will capture the spirit of such a home for those who become part of our learning community, our Little Lea!
