LAKE IN THE HILLS – A new day care plans to open soon in Lake in the Hills.

Trustees approved new zoning for Little Minds Learning Center, 40 W. Acorn Lane, at Thursday’s Village Board meeting.

“I think it’ll be great for the village because this is a big need for the area and community,” Community Development Director Michael Brown said. “There are lots of kids, and this is a great educational opportunity for those children.”

The property formerly was used as a KinderCare day care facility from 2000 to 2016, but the facility closed in early 2016 and has been vacant since.

Half of the building will be used for the day care, and the other half will be up for lease, according to village documents. No specific use has been identified for the other half of the building so far.

Improvements to the interior of the building are under construction, according to village documents.

Little Minds Learning Center also is working on opening a center in Crystal Lake at 290 Memorial Court, according to its website.
