Little Heroes recognizes that children in center-based care spend much of their lives away from their families in surroundings that are, by nature, institutional. Therefore, our facility was purposefully designed with an opposite appearance. Little Heroes is the only unique looking “Home-like” standalone preschool in Doral with 20 years of experience in early childhood education with “On-site Security & Paramedics” and Web-cams. Our “Home-like” environment provides softness where children feel safe and secure during the long hours while in our care. To reduce the tension; we create positive, nurturing interactions between teachers and children while our homelike environment eases their stress of being away from home. Don’t let our style deceive you……we also offer many opportunities for children to think, use their imagination, and create through a play based learning environment! Come visit us and see for yourself.
