Welcome! We’re glad you found us!

After teaching thousands of children, this family of educations formed the Wilkins Learning Center to design the same environment that gave maximized results in education: Love! Respect! Make Learning FUN! This is the core that parents call the Wilkins Way Approach. Parents recognized exceptional compassion, and how it deeply impacts children’s hearts AND minds. They believe the “way” knowledge is taught is just as important as knowledge itself. This award-winning Approach gave them four nominations as Walt Disney Teacher of the Year.

The “Way” everyone is valued, taught, and spoken to has propelled their learning center to receive the highest compliment; voted BEST Preschool and BEST Childcare in the entire East Valley! The world is always changing, but the Wilkins Way Approach successfully remains the same. It is grounded in a “rich soil” of compassionate trained staff that grows highly-capable, kind children. Eager learners develop an "I can attitude" that propels them to never give up! Learning is ignited when young children discover their courage and confidence to try new concepts. In this fertile rich soil, miracles occur as nuggets of wisdom are sprinkled in the minds and hearts of children throughout the day.

“Love is powerful,” and the simple act of caring, along with expertise in early education, helps young children soar as they Climb the Mountain of Knowledge. Wilkins Learning Center provides an extraordinary learning environment that raises the bar of loving, teaching, and respecting precious children. This foundation permeates throughout the daily activities and encourages little ones to learn the ABC’s of academics AND the ABC’s of life skills!
