Welcome to the LWP Family!


Little Woodland Preschool is owned by a husband and wife duo who have a passion for educating young minds while still letting a child be a child. Aaron and Kelsi Sykes took over ownership of the Lake Mills Campus in February of 2020 and the Belleville Campus in May of 2021. Kelsi has a background in Early Childhood Education. Aaron is educated in finances, business, and overall anything that you would ever need to know about business. 



At Little Woodland Preschool (LWP), our mission is to educate children to be creative, critical thinkers. We integrate developmentally appropriate academic education with child-driven activities in all areas, focusing on the arts and sciences. At the same time, we promote the emotional and physical health of the children. Our goal is to create lifelong learners who reach their full potential as contributors to the community.

Caring Child


Our image of the child is that they are capable and unique individuals who should not be confined to a standardized form of learning. We believe children should be free to explore and discover the world around them in a safe, loving, and fun environment. Here at LWP, we strive to provide this type of environment and give each child an opportunity to learn individually, grow healthy bodies and minds, and form meaningful relationships.
