Welcome to Smart Start Learning Centers!  We offer parents caring education and learning focused child care for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years.

Our staff are experienced and are trained in contemporary methods and philosophies of quality child care.  Our goal is to help each child we care for to develop physically, emotionally and socially in an environment that is safe, stimulating, and supportive. 

We are committed to serving children in a manner that parents will feel comfortable in their choice of Smart Start Learning Center as a care and education partner

for their children entrusted to us.


Originally started in Belleville, IL in 2000, we opened a second new center in New Baden, IL in 2008.  Each center provides the same quality services and both centers are licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. 


Both Belleville and New Baden facilities provide FREE Preschool For All services through the sponsorship of the Illinois State Board of Education. 

We participate in the child care subsidy program sponsored by the Illinois Department of Human Services and administered through the Child Care Resource and Referral program of Childrens Home and Aid Society.  We also participate in the Federal Food Program and provide nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks daily for our program participants.
