Ladybug Class / Age 2

Schedule | Curriculum | Teacher Profiles | Tuition

In the Ladybug class children are introduced to school in a fun, loving and Christian environment. They are encouraged to use all areas of the classroom, Cognitive, Block, Dramatic play, Self-help Art and Reading/Books as they play.   They have their own playground with structures and equipment geared for 2 to 3 year old children. Throughout the day we offer a variety of hands-on sensory and art activities. The children have one Circle Time a day that includes songs, movement, stories and learning concepts. One day a month the director takes over circle time for "Bible Time" where simple Bible lessons are told. As the youngest class at Little Angels, the Ladybug class focuses on social and emotional growth along with nurturing the development of each unique individual.

Cindy Ornelas

My name is Cindy Ornelas and I am the Lead Teacher in the Ladybug Room. I graduated from the Early Childhood Education Program at Santa Barbara City College. I am also First Aid and CPR certified.

I have worked with Mary Lopez and many of the other teachers for over 20 years.

I started the Ladybug Room many years ago at another preschool and when the school closed, helped open Little Angels and continued the Ladybug Class here. I am proud to be working with children for so many years, in a career that I truly love.


My name is Maddie and I am a teacher in the Ladybug Class. I was born and raised in Santa Barbara but have been away for the past two years finishing school. I moved up North and taught in a Pre-K Class while attending Humboldt State University, where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development. I am so excited to be a teacher in the two year old class and I am happy to be back in town! I am also CPR and First Aid Certified.


My name is Rosy and I am the Assistant in the Ladybug Classroom. I'm currently a student at Santa Barbara City College studying Early Childhood Education. I enjoy working with children of all ages but my favorite age are the 2 year-olds! I have worked with this age child for almost three years, and am excited to be with 2-3 year-olds again at Little Angels! I am also CPR and First Aid certified.
