Little Minds Learning Center is your premier child development experience at an affordable price! Todd and Stacy Barnhardt opened our original location in Hudson in 2008 after searching high and low for a learning center for 3 of their children. They were in search of a full day educational, affordable, and loving care with one on one attention. They also realized how important communication and transparency are for families. Unable to find a center with this kind of unique care, they decided to start their own! LMLC began to grow and we now have a number of locations, in several states, where families like you have come to expect this type of high quality educational care!

We offer a full day curriculum based on state and national standards, and we tailor the learning experience specifically to your child's development. We offer lessons in Spanish, Yoga, and Sign Language (age dependent) to aid in the development of our students.

All have received an extensive background and referral check, and most possess or are in pursuit of degrees in Early Childhood Development, Elementary Education, or other fields beneficial to providing a premier childcare experience at Little Minds Learning Center.
