Welcome to Little Tigers

We are a small center that has been serving the Pickerington Community since 1983 with quality programs for children ages 1 1/2 to 11 years.

The Ohio Department of Health and Ohio Job and Family Services now require early childhood education programs to observe the following restrictions:

  • All children and staff are required a health screen prior to entry into the center.
  • Currently only children and staff are allowed access to the classrooms.
  • Classroom ratios are reduced to the following:
    • Toddlers: 1 staff to 6 children
    • Other classrooms: 1 staff to 9 children
    • Additional cleaning and sanitizing measures are undertaken daily

Our hours have changed to accommodate the additional sanitizing efforts. Open at 6:30am and Close at 5:30pm

Our staff participates in professional continuing education. This learning is designed to refine their classroom skills as well as to keep up to date with the latest research on how education, best learning practices and staff instruction facilitate children’s best learning styles in order to design and implement appropriate and fun educational activities.

Our Philosophy

At Little Tigers we believe that children learn best through developmentally appropriate discovery, experiences and play. All areas of development are enhanced by a large variety of activities that allow for success and encourage advancement in your child's development.
