June Briggs, Preschool Teacher: I have been with Little Village since August of 2014 and have 37 years of teaching experience. I spend my days in the preschool 3’s room but also teach the school age children during the summer camp program. I love Little Village because it has a warm and friendly atmosphere where children and families come first!

Tina Galloway, Site Administrator:  I graduated from Kent State University with a BA in Individual and Family Studies. I have enjoyed working in the early childhood field on and off for the past 20 years, and I have 11 year in an administrative position.    I am so excited to be a part of the Little Village family, and look forward to all the wonderful things to come.

Volunteer With Us

Thanks to our wonderful affiliation with Hiram College, we are able to bring in qualified and enthusiastic students to work along with our staff. 

With this fellowship, we are able to give back to our Hiram community by providing Hiram College students with hands-on professional experience in early childhood education as well as childcare. With the continual growth of Little Village Early Learning Center, we hope to further educate caring childcare staff.

Meet Our Staff

Who We Are

Each class is headed by a highly qualified
Early Childhood Professional. Our staff members are nurturing by nature and children at heart. While some of our staff have Bachelors and Masters Degrees, others are gaining valuable experience with Little Village. All of our staff members are required to take in-service training classes while employed with us. This gives them the skills they need to present 

programs of excellence by challenging our students with enjoyable and educational activities. For specific details on the educational 

background or other qualifications of the individual teachers that work with your child, arrange a conference with our administrator.
