Welcome to Young Years, a state licensed early childhood education center, and school-age program, located in southeast Shreveport, Louisiana - a truly new, innovative and affordable concept in childcare and preschool education.

37 years of consistently working to improve the program, Young Years full-time education and childcare center offers the finest facilities available for children ages 30 months to 12 years.


Young Years has been hand-selected by the Department of Education (ED) to be a Louisiana test site for the recently developed pre-school HATCH Program. Using the "Big Day for Pre-K" curriculum in conjunction with ED's HATCH Program and the Young Years Tutor-by-Two's Program, Young Years' kindergarten prep program is designed for 2-1/2 to 5 year olds preparing them for their all-important school years ahead. We are excited to announce that 96% of Young Years' students that applied and tested for the 2017 Caddo Parish Magnet Program were accepted!

School-Age Before/After School & Summer:

We offer an extensive school-age program for before and after school, including summers, with planned activities and sports to keep students busy with age appropriate groupings of ages 5-to-7 and 8-to-12 year olds.  We provide transportation to, and from, A.C. Steere Elementary, Arthur Circle Elementary, Eden Gardens Magnet, Fairfield Magnet, Riverside Elementary, Shreve Island Elementary, South Highlands Magnet, and University Elementary.  Also, we provide before and after school care to Youree Drive Middle School and Caddo Middle Magnet.

Please feel free to contact us to setup a time when you can come tour our facility and meet our staff. We look forward to meeting you and your children.
