About IXL Howell

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 and curriculum 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:

  • Michigan Standards of Quality
  • Individual, Small and Large Groups
  • Phonic Soup
  • Handwriting Without Tears
  • Specials

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. We have certified elementary teachers in our young preschool, preschool, and Pre-K classrooms. 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.
