Little Lamb Preschool

Little Lamb Preschool provides a creative learning experience for children within a Christian framework.

 

The Little Lamb Difference:

 

Classroom Dynamic: In multi-age classrooms children have opportunities to model skills and behavior for younger children, be nurtured and encouraged by older peer models, participate in more complex activities with older peers, and develop at their own pace knowing that there are a variety of developmental expectations in the classroom not just one.

 

Curriculum: Our curriculum fosters the development of the whole child- physically, socially, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually. A balance of structured and independent activities supports children as they grow and learn in all of these developmental areas. Children are encouraged to be actively engaged, creative, and inquisitive.  We want children to feel good about themselves and what they can accomplish, to learn about themselves and their environment, and to make new friends.  Our pre-k program provides developmentally appropriate, individualized instruction to prepare children for Kindergarten.

 

Teachers: Our teachers are dedicated, caring, and passionate! With specific training and education in the field of early childhood, our teachers understand the unique needs and learning styles of preschool aged children.  A commitment to continuous professional development means that our teachers are on the forefront of early childhood education.

 

Family:  Early childhood education is a true partnership between the school and a child’s family. Our families make Little Lamb great!  We encourage families to come into the classroom to help on a regular basis and we have many special family centered events thought out the year. 

 

 

Two year old Co-op

Tuesday or Wednesday from 9:15-11:15

A Thursday class is added if enrollment numbers allow.

This program is designed to provide quality care to toddlers in a safe and caring atmosphere while their parents enjoy free time.  

 

During each session there is one teacher and one or two parents remain as parent helpers.

 

Each family takes about 6-8 turns as the co-op parent throughout the year. On the days that you are not co-oping, you are free for two hours. 

 

The children have the chance to practice separating from their parents, interacting with a group of their peers, and relating to other adults.

Children do not have to be potty trained for the 2 year old program.

Activities of the Day include:

-Free play

- Diaper changes, potty time and hand washing

-Creative project or exploration opportunities

-Snack

-Clean up time

-Large motor skills and group activities

Multi -age class

3 year olds attend either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday from 9:00-11:30.

Little Lamb Preschool believes in the Multi-age advantage, which features small group learning based on need, ability, and interest rather than age. There are two teachers everyday, with parent volunteers on a regular basis.

Children must be using the bathroom independently to attend.
