What makes Little Jewels Learning Center unique?

At Little Jewels Learning Center we collaborate ourselves with working families for personal growth, development and education of each child. We are a locally owned and family-oriented preschool in Bloomington Normal that provides child care for kids ages six weeks to school age with 3 convenient locations. Our staff is motivated and passionate about children and teaching. Teachers at Little Jewels Learning Center create bonds with the children and lifelong friendships with co-workers. We truly are one big happy family!

Staff Testimonial

There are many benefits of working at Little Jewels. One of the major benefits is the parents, they are so nice and understanding. They are always willing to help in the classroom and with bringing things in. Another benefit is the leadership. My director is very awesome at her job! She is always willing to listen and give advice. She takes initiative and is always willing to help out. She is on top of things and if she doesn't know an answer she will look into it, quickly. She has the kids best interest always in mind and supports her staff. She makes it very easy to deal with a situation if one was to pop up. A big benefit for me would be seeing my kid throughout the day. Watching him interact and play with his teachers and friends is so rewarding. It is very nice to watch from a distance and see him in his own environment. I feel that having three different locations is a great benefit, also. There are many options and ways you can work up.

Staff Testimonial

I think three benefits of working at Little Jewels are definitely making new friends everyday, someone new comes long and you make a new friend everyday and not just the kids, but the staff as well. Another benefit is that, there is so much to do at this job whether you're a teacher or kid, there are so many activities to do with the kids that keep you busy. The third benefit I would say is that, the staff and kids are really nice and make you feel welcomed when you come into work everyday. What surprised me most is that, so many kids fall in love with you everyday, meaning when they see you, they get all excited and want to see you more and that is a feeling you cannot get from any other job! This job is probably one of the best jobs to have, especially if you are going into college for early childhood education, it is a good first step!

My favorite benefit is the bond and relationship you form with the children! I look forward to coming into work everyday because I get to see the kids that I absolutely love and cherish! Another bond is the relationship you form with your coworkers, I have formed countless of friendships through Little Jewels and I only work part-time! Then lastly, I absolutely have loved the opportunity to work with children while being a full time college student! After I graduate from college, I hope to work with children, so I absolutely love the experience I am gaining. I love coming into work everyday because it truly feels like a family, all of the coworkers are so nice and welcoming. Then the bond and relationship I have formed with the children is indescribable!
