Little Tykes help children engage their bodies and minds through fun and educational activities.

Our History

Established by Beatrice Garrone in 1995, Little Tykes Preschool launched life-changing experiences for children in Lodi, NJ. That early experience set the stage for how we do our educational programs today—creating fun and faithful places for young people to grow. What we do makes a huge impact, serving 80 children, their families and 16 educators each year. On top of our attention to quality care and education is a commitment to excellence – all qualities we admire and share at Little Tykes Preschool

Our Graduates

Children graduate Little Tykes programs with the skills they need to succeed in private or public school – socially and academically ready for the years ahead.


Our Community

Little Tykes’ families come from nearby neighborhoods, creating a close-knit environment and strong parent partnerships. Whether we’re close to home or near the office, our center is ideal for busy working families and easy to get to – for pick-up and drop-off or to stop in for a visit.

We use fun, research-based, multi-sensory strategies to help children develop early learning skills.
