Our Vision and Values

Our Story


Little Dreamers Academy was founded in 2002 by the Ward’s. After owning property in the City of Cornelia and much prayer, the Ward’s realized their purpose was to provide a childcare center that offered more than other schools throughout Northeast Georgia. Their prayers were answered in 2002 and Little Dreamers Academy was opened.

The academy is owned by Kay Ward and operated by her two daughters, Becky Cantrell and Amy Grant who are actively integrated into every aspect of the business, on-site and every day.
