About IXL Birmingham

IXL Learning Center is a fully licensed and state inspected Childcare Center. We offer full and part time, year round care and education for infants from six weeks to school age children. Our Hamburg IXL location was established in May of 2001 and has been operating with our current owner since 2003. We then expanded to include our Howell location, established in 2008. Shortly after, Birmingham became our third center.  In 2013, we simultaneously opened our Northville and South Lyon locations

Programs & Smart Start Curriculum

We provide stimulating programs which encourage learning through experience. Children are encouraged to explore their creativity, independence, problem solving skills, muscle development and self help skills. Lessons are planned based on weekly thematic units that incorporate:

 Assessments are given periodically to track a child’s growth, and a portfolio is kept for each child.


Our staff is comprised of educated and nurturing teachers, with educational levels ranging from early childhood field training to master’s degrees. All teachers are CPR, first aid and blood borne pathogen trained. We also require a criminal background check on each employee. Our staff is very committed to our families and the center as a whole, creating a very low employee turnover rate.

We are open from 7:00am to 6:00pm, Monday Through Friday. Major holidays are the only days our Center closes.
