Little Newtons was founded by Alise McGregor in 2009. Alise’s education background was diversified by a Bachelor’s in Exercise Physiology with an emphasis on Cardiac Rehabilitation leading to Post Baccalaureate studies as a RN. After five years as a Nurse, she had her first child, Franchessca. Holding different educational viewpoints on education and Early Childhood than what she was finding for her daughter; she created a program of what she felt would provide children with an intense, exciting curriculum as well as first class care. Understanding the research that “zero to five” is the most crucial age span for children to develop a lifelong love for learning and believed that children are “sponges” during this timeframe; she opened her program in Plymouth, MN. The center in Plymouth grew from seven Children in September of 2009 to 264 children in 2014. McGregor has since opened an additional center in Maple Grove, the fall of 2014 as well as a center in Champlin in 2015.
I was a little skeptical at first, since the program seemed 'too good to be true.' But in fact, it isn't---my child, husband, and I are very happy with the care/education he receives every day.
I am so thankful we found Lil Newton's Nest. It is really hard to find a place you can trust 100%. LNN is that place. I know when I drop off my daughter she is in wonderful hands.
What I like most about LNN is it has the intimacy of a home daycare but the educational value of a center.
We are so happy with moving our daughter into the preschool program at LNN. The experiences and education she is receiving blows our minds when we go through her weekly report each week.
I don't have any plans of ever taking my child out of Lil Newton's Nest. After being at several child care centers, this is it! The staff is extraordinary and you can see that they love what they do!
