Little Beginnings with BIG futures!


Making a difference in the lives of your infant, toddler, preschooler, and school-age child!

Little Beginnings Learning Center is a Christian childcare facility and has provided quality child care in Hastings, MN since 1999. Our caring staff are certified according to the state of MN and have experience related to child development. Little Beginnings Learning Center is a licensed facility operating out of the old Anytime Fitness Cooperate headquarters building just 3 miles north of Hastings, and 3 miles south of Cottage Grove.

Little Beginnings Learning Center offers programs for children ages 6 weeks to five years. School age care is available during the summer months. Our programs focus on age-appropriate play and learning opportunities. All children are involved in our educational and fun activities including music, art, science, math, storytelling and recreation.

We would love to tell you more!

We’re building! Our new location is just one block north and should be ready for us to move in by the beginning of October!


Our Mission

We are a Christian child care center dedicated to the family. We recognize the family to be the primary source of love and care for a child. We believe in the support and supplementation of training in the home which we believe was ordained by God to be carried out by loving parents. Because children learn best through play and discovery, Little Beginnings will offer developmentally appropriate experiences that will encourage individuality as well as promoting the joy and excitement of learning.
