As a long term, local Phoenix business, community involvement is very important to us. Valley Child Care & Learning Center is proud to have served Phoenix families since 1967 with childcare programs that are safe and dependable, this achievement is something that would not have been possible without the support of our families and other local partners. Research shows that children enter Kindergarten best prepared to excel when they have been exposed to quality literature throughout their preschool years. By partnering with Little Free Library’s book sharing movement we look forward to another way to we can serve our community by inspiring a love of literacy in young children, ensuring their achievements in all future school endeavors.

The grand opening of Little Free Library #89758 at our Valley Child Care & Learning Center – South Phoenix location was a very special event we were excited to include our preschool class in. Together we discussed what the purpose of this library is and what our responsibility was in taking care of it. Personal library cards were created by each student and they were encouraged to share the library with their family and friends.

We then invited the class to assist us in welcoming a brand new collection of books to the library and setting them inside. When visiting and borrowing books from the Little Free Library at Valley Child Care & Learning Center – South Phoenix you can trust that any book you borrow was welcomed with kind words and a warm hug before being included in our collection!
