Melody enjoys hiking and running on different trails during her free time. She has been working in child care for about 2 years.

Ms. Natalie Barker

She has an Associates In Early Childhood Development from the University of Miami and has been working in child care for over 10 years. "I strive to provide a safe and educational environment for your child. A person you can drop off your child and have peace of mind that they are receiving the best care possible. My goal is to provide an environment where children thrive and learn new skills daily, while gaining confidence in their own abilities. You will observe me in the classroom at all times interacting with the children and you will also see the impact of experience and the dedication I have for children. I’m very excited to be a part of this great center. "

Miss Carly Arp
"I am blessed to be one of the infant teachers here at Legacy Learning Center. I am a student at UCA and I’m majoring in Psychology and minoring in Philosophy. I come from a big family and I am the second oldest of six, so I am very comfortable taking care of little ones. In my free time I enjoy visiting my family in Mountain Home, babysitting, and going outside! To me, Legacy is like home. My hope is to extend that same level of personal comfort and care to you and your child. I look forward to every day I get to spend with the sweet babies!” Everyone that meets Carly knows immediately what a special person she is and she is a huge blessing to us at Legacy!

Miss JJ Tufu
Bio coming soon!
Kids are naturally drawn to playing outside and there are numerous benefits of outdoor play; it allows them to explore their environment, develop muscle strength and coordination, and gain self-confidence.
Outside is our happy place!
In addition to our curriculum, Legacy Learning offers three opportunities for educational enrichment-
Chapel will be held weekly. This will include music, prayer time, and a devotional that is age appropriate.
Children of all ages are able to enjoy uplifting songs during this time each week!
Storytime is a great way to promote literacy among our children. books, flannel board stories and puppets are used to build upon children's natural enthusiasm for books and reading.
