Our Learning Center is the Place to Bee.


Welcome to Lil' Bee's Learning Center.

Our childcare program is much more than a daycare. We implement the preschool experience and educational elements into our childcare practices, ensuring your child leaves here fully prepared for the classroom.


Our Values

We strive to provide a safe, valuable, developmentally appropriate learning experience for each child, preparing them for the classroom as well as the real world.


We build a solid foundation for each child’s school and life success by helping them gain key social, emotional, academic, physical, and creative skills.

Social Interaction

We help children manage feelings, develop social skills, gain problem solving abilities, and work well with others.

Why We Started A Learning Center

After Briah entered elementary school, Brandon & Brooke Olson quickly came to understand the importance of top-notch pre-education to prepare children for the classroom.

When the couple had their twin boys, they actively searched Mankato for childcare that provided this pre-education, but realized these centers were either full or nonexistent. This was their opportunity to make pre-education childcare locally available, benefiting children and parents throughout the community.

I am extremely pleased the with care my child receives at the center. The staff is beyond fantastic and the facility is clean, organized and well-maintained. I would highly recommend them!

I’ve known Brandon and Brooke for years. I can’t imagine a couple of more caring people to run this business.
— Aaron Hatanpa
Great facility and great staff! They also have a strong focus on educational activities to get the kiddos ready for kindergarten. No tears during first day drop-off and all smiles going in second day for two-and-a-half year old!
