At Little Stars Early Learning Center, we are blessed to walk alongside parents to care for and nurture children while helping them to develop a faith that sticks and a passion for learning in a school environment that feels like home. Our passionate teachers provide engaging, hands-on, and interactive learning experiences. We offer a variety of days and times to meet your needs.
In the 3-year-old Preschool with Mrs. Griffore, we learn the importance of play and teamwork while getting to know school procedures. We are introduced to Jesus and the many wonderful things he has done for us.
As 3-year old’s, we read daily to nourish our love of books, begin letter recognition, work on basic
phonemic awareness and practice our names. Math comes alive with hands on lessons that include counting to twenty, learning shapes and discovering both shapes and numbers in our daily environment.
In Mrs. May’s 4 year-old Preschool class, we nourish our love of learning while getting prepared for Kindergarten. We learn that Jesus Christ is our savior and enjoy weekly bible stories in the classroom.
In the 4-year-old room, we will learn classroom management skills. We grow our love of reading with fun stories that we often make “come alive”. We also learn phonemic awareness, sight words and early comprehension strategies. Math becomes alive with hands on lessons that include counting to one hundred, manipulating shapes. Our interactive classroom helps students develop fine and gross motor skills,basic technology skills, teamwork, problem solving and writing letters, numbers and names, just to name a few skills that we learn.
