Little Husky Learning Center

Welcome to the Little Husky Learning Center!

Little Husky Learning Center is a Preschool through Kindergarten center located on the south side of the Oelwein High School, on 8th Ave SE. The Center also operates as a year-round child care center and offers before or after school child care programs for children, ages 2 weeks through 12 years old. With capacity for 140 children, the learning center maintains small classroom sizes to encourage child learning and participation.

Little Husky Learning Center uses Creative Curriculum where children learn through play and hands-on experiences. Children investigate their surroundings to address the different areas of development such as, social, emotional, cognitive, physical and language. The staff at Little Husky Learning Center offer children a variety of engaging activities to build reading and math potential and continue to do whatever it takes to educate all students.

From the Principal: 

Welcome to Oelwein Elementary!

Our vision of Happy, Healthy, and Awesome is lived out by our staff at both Little Husky Learning Center and Wings Park Elementary. As families, we look for you to be partners in our education and help us live out this vision as well. We here at Oelwein Elementary are willing to do Whatever It Takes to educate all children and thank you for entrusting us to be your partner in that journey for your student here in Oelwein.

Education is continually changing and we adjust to that in Oelwein. Core instruction (literacy, math, social studies, and science) is a focus for us, but we also make sure we educate the whole child. We incorporate play, music, art, and social-emotional learning for our students throughout their education. We want to prepare our students at every level for the best possible outcome once they leave our hands.

I have been a part of the Oelwein community now for 4 years. Boy does time fly! I have enjoyed raising my two Siamese cats, Humphrey and Delilah here and I have added an addition to the family- Cleo, a red standard poodle. She can be seen walking the town, at the dog park, and even at school on occasion. Outside of school, you'll find me out and about volunteering with the fire department, United Way, or at the Plentiful Pantry. Our community sure is a special place.

Going into my second year at the elementary level is exciting for me. I am ready to take everything I have learned and help our already amazing staff take it to the next level. Like our students, I learn so much each year and when you know better you do better.

I am passionate about building community and strong relationships with those I get the honor to serve. Don't be a stranger and let's build our schools stronger together!

Watch out for deer,

Jamie Jacobs
