  • Individualized, culturally responsive care

  • Qualified and experienced teachers, with very low staff turnover


We are fully licensed by New York State, and accredited by the Council on Accreditation.


The Little Village started as a daycare facility for staff of The Children’s Village (CV). However, we quickly realized the need for local daycare in the Rivertowns. Today, the majority of the kids at the Little Village come from the local community.


Our location on the CV campus offers unique advantages, including access to a fully-staffed medical clinic and a serene outdoor play area that’s free from traffic noise. It also enables us to keep tuition rates low and offer higher salaries and full benefits, which has helped us hire an amazing staff with very low attrition.


“Huge compliments to The Little Village Daycare. They really have a great staff. The teacher in charge of the Infant Room, Antoinette, has the most wonderful aura and creates a calm atmosphere for the newborns and infants. Also the Director, Patricia, is great at leading the team of amazing, caring and loving teachers. Our 1 year old comes home happy every day. When we drop her off at the daycare, we leave with a peace of mind knowing that she is in good hands and will be cared for. We have visited many daycares around the area before deciding on the Little Village and am sure glad we found this hidden gem!”


“The teachers at Little Village provide loving and professional care. Both our children have been very happy there. Our daughter has been attending the daycare since she was 8 months old and is 4.5 now. Never has been there a day when she would come home sad or disappointed. She has been thriving under the teachers’ care. They make sure that all enrolled children develop necessary skills to become self-aware, collaborative, compassionate, and polite human beings.”


“Thank you does not seem like enough to show appreciation for Little Village Daycare. They are extremely caring, patient, and understanding. I could not be more happy and at peace knowing that not only my little one but all the little ones are safe and happy at Little Village Daycare. They provide an atmosphere of fun, learning, growth, trips, and great food. The Director and her staff are nothing short of amazing.”


“Little Village is a great daycare. I went to several daycares in the area prior to making my final choice and the attention and time that was spent with me when I came in won me over. Everyone always has a smile on their face and has a genuine interest in your child. The teachers are great as well as the director, Patricia. Also, other daycares had so many stipulations, fees and overages that I felt overwhelmed. Here I felt like everything was packaged up for me. Thanks for all you do!”


“I could not be happier with Little Village. My daughter has been in the infant room for 2½ months and loves it. The staff are very caring and attentive. They provide her with both a solid routine and the encouragement to learn and explore with the other children. She always smiles from ear to ear when she sees her teachers. Little Village has a very homey and loving environment. It is not large and impersonal like some other daycare centers. I highly recommend it to other parents.”
