Personal Attention and
Individualized Lesson Plans

Your child receives more one-on-one time with the teacher because of our smaller class sizes. Fewer students in the class also allow teachers to customize their lessons based on the interest and learning styles of the students, making for a more enriching classroom experience.

The Abeka Curriculum
Blends Academics and Faith

In kindergarten, your child will enjoy a broad range of topics, from math, language arts, science, music, and physical education. The Abeka Book curriculum uses Bible stories and a Christian worldview to bring your child the knowledge they need for grade school.

parent reviews

"I still cannot say enough good things about them"

I’ve been taking my daughter to The Little Lamb since she was 13 weeks old. Being a working mom, it was so important to me to find a loving and caring environment to leave my newborn in. I’ve always felt that the staff at The Little Lamb has provided this kind of environment. Now she is 4 years old, and I still cannot say enough good things about them. Not only is she in a fun, loving environment, she is learning so much! I’m so grateful for everything she is learning, from life skills and preparation for kindergarten to learning about God.

- Kristen Stranko

"The loving and safe environment and enriching activities nurture our children emotionally, socially, academically, physically, and spiritually"

The Little Lamb provides exceptional care and education for our toddler and preschooler. The loving and safe environment and enriching activities nurture our children emotionally, socially, academically, physically, and spiritually. We are confident in sharing our children with the teachers and staff every day, as they feel like family.

- Lisa Herrmann

"The overall curriculum is wonderful and we have been very pleased"

We have been part of the Little Lamb community for over 5 years. Our daughter attended from infancy through pre-k and our son is now in the infant room. The overall curriculum is wonderful and we have been very pleased with our daughter’s kindergarten readiness. Child care is a very personal decision and one situation may not be right for every family. But I’m confident Little Lamb was the right choice for our family!
