Each month, Operation Little Learners (OLL) hosts a morning of family fun in Hampton Roads! These Family Fun Field Trips are open to all active duty military dependents ages 18 months to 5 years and their siblings. These fun activity days aim to include both current participants and military families interested in the program by providing an additional opportunity for connection within their community. Our Little Learners have been all over Virginia Beach in the past few months. From the Virginia Aquarium to Hunt Club Farms, these kiddos are making friends and having so much fun doing it!
On Friday, the OLL team met families at the Gator Bowling Alley - JEB Little Creek. Participants enjoyed a game of bowling, shoe rental and lunch with friends at no cost. These Family Fun Field Trips are thanks to our strategic partners who work with us to strengthen military families in Hampton Roads. We understand that one of the hardest things about military life is creating new connections with each new PCS. As one parent put it, Operation Little Learners makes each new "duty station easier by providing these programs for us. Plus the teachers are amazing!"
A program created by the Armed Services YMCA, Operation Little Learners (OLL) provides a supportive environment for both parents and children to learn, connect and grow. This parent-and-me preschool readiness program is open to all military dependents ages 18 months to 5 years. OLL understands that parents are a child's first and best teacher. This program equips parents with the tools they need to help their child develop and grow while also giving both parent and child an opportunity for connection and community.
