Philosophy of Little Angels Preschool

Little Angels Preschool is a loving, nurturing, and safe environment where we seek to educate the whole child. The preschool provides age appropriate experiences for the two, three, four, and early five-year-olds in preparation for kindergarten. The social, emotional, cognitive, creative, physical and language domains are enhanced through hands-on experience in play.

The spiritual domain is enhanced as the children are introduced to the loving goodness of God, and to the love of Jesus through song, books, simple prayer, positive social interaction and monthly Bible time for the two younger classes and monthly Chapel for the Pre-K class.

Teachers, in their role of caring for children, model and teach appropriate behavior. Children need to know what we expect from them before they follow our directions. We therefore expect teachers to use constructive and preventive methods of discipline and to maintain an atmosphere of love, acceptance, and order. This atmosphere is one in which children respect themselves, their peers and their teachers.

Parent Participation

Each family is encouraged to participate at Little Angels and there are many ways to do so. However participation is not mandatory. We also have an open door policy, where parents are welcome to visit the classroom at any time.

Non-profit Organization

Little Angels Preschool is run as a non-profit organization and is governed by a board comprised of parents, staff, and a representative of Trinity Lutheran Church. All donations given to the school are tax-deductible.

Additional Programs

We have a Back-to-School Picnic for the families at the beginning of the school year and a Soiree/Auction in the fall for the parents to get to know each other. Our fundraisers continue after the Soiree with a trike-a-thon and a carnival for the children in the spring! A Christmas Show and Sing-a-long are given in December each year, as well as a Spring Sing in May. We then end the school year in June with a Pre-K graduation and an end of the year party for the children.
