Welcome to Little Pilgrims' Christian Learning Center!

Hello and welcome to Little Pilgrims' Christian Learning Center.


My name is Jesse and I'm the director here at Little Pilgrims. I graduated from the University of Montana with a Bachelor of Science degree in Resource Conservation in 2001.


Life led me to childcare though I feel it is my true calling. I got my first job in a baby room 12 years ago and that is when I met three of the wonderful teachers I still work with today!


Besides being the center director, I am qualified for early childhood and school age teaching, along with being a certified child care provider. I am currently working towards my Childcare Administrator credential.


I love to learn and hope to pass this onto the children and teachers daily.


My door is always open for questions and look forward to meeting new  families who are interested in our facility.

Our Mission:


Little Pilgrims Christian Learning Center is committed to delivering the highest quality of care.  We will provide a welcoming, nurturing, safe environment where children and families will be supported with love and opportunities to grow socially, emotionally, cognitively, physically, and spiritually.  


No child will be refused admittance due to race, sex, religion, color, creed, political persuasion, nationality, disability, or ancestry.


Little Pilgrims will take steps required to ensure that no child with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated or otherwise treated differently as stated in the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Meet the Director, Jesse Carlson.

"We have two boys and were extremely nervous when it was time to send our boys to childcare. Little Pilgrims was a perfect fit for our children. Our boys felt at home the minute we walked in. They offer quality childcare, go above and beyond and have work with our schedule and needs. We would recommend Little Pilgrims Christian Learning Center to any families that are looking for wonderful childcare."
