Little Lambs Preschool Program Mission:
To provide a positive preschool experience that helps develop social skills, promotes independence, and fosters a love of learning. Little Lambs will provide a caring, faith filled, Catholic environment. Little Lambs will recognize the “Whole Child” as a child of God, and appreciate them for who God created them to be. We will partner with Parents to ensure the child follows the teachings of the Catholic Faith, Jesus Christ, and that they grow to answer the call of God’s voice.
Little Lambs Philosophy:
Little Lambs believes in the God given blessings and gifts of each child. By providing the opportunity to know God, through traditional Catholic culture, and by working with parents as partners, we will work to catechize and enrich our children’s lives academically, socially, and spiritually with Christian and Catholic World-View

Program highlights - Our program strives to foster a sense of dignity and independence; readying the child for either a follow-on PreK program and/or directly to Kindergarten.
It is filled with academic enrichment with a focus on socialization development. Social interaction is enormously important for early learning. Social interactions might include physical activities, dialog development, (speech) language development, and imaginative play. Socialization might also include lessons of sharing, taking turns, and cooperating, and games that teach different learning strategies.
There is a specific curriculum each class. It is imperative for early-childhood development to practice the cultures and experience lessons in social development in a safe and loving, and nurturing environment.
We aim to provide such an environment centered on our Catholic Faith. The right environment will foster maturity with strong language skills, creative thinking skills, and attributes of empathy, good communication, and self-confidence. A Christ centered environment will lead a child to realize their human dignity and allow them to prosper and grow according to God’s plan for the whole child.
