LPC History


Little People’s College was founded in 1980 by two sisters, Sandy Rego and Joyce
deSousa, who were public school teachers and mothers of preschool age children.
Together they developed a unique curriculum which included the skills which children
would need when they entered public school. The learning begins when a child steps
through the door and continues throughout the day.

Little People’s College locations have been nationally accredited since 1992 and continue
to pursue accreditation for the newest centers as they reach their first anniversary.
There are currently 14 locations and the curriculum continues to be reviewed and
updated annually to include the most current changes to local, state and national

Our success has been a reflection of a dedicated, caring and hard-working staff who are
committed to our mission ….to provide the best possible program of early education
and care available–a program where children are loved and where children and families
feel safe, secure and respected, enabling children to grow to their fullest potential:
physically, emotionally, socially, cognitively and in language development.

We invite you to preview our slide show to get a glimpse at some of the high points of
our curriculum. At Little People’s College we…begin with children where they are and
guide them to becoming the best that they can be. Feel free to stop by unannounced to
see why families continue to choose Little People’s College to meet their child care needs.
