Mission
:
Our mission at Little Lambs is for each child to grow in the knowledge and love of God. We will guide each child toward a mature social relationship with their peers by helping them acclimate to a variety of social environments and fostering the development of communication skills. We will also motivate each child to seek information, understanding, encourage independent thinking, offer opportunities for creative expression, and foster responsibility.

Age:
To be enrolled in the Little Lambs program your child must be between the ages of 18 months old (by September 30) and 4 years old. We now have 4 classes: 18 month olds, 2 year olds, 3 year olds and 4 year olds.

Days:
All classes operate 3 days a week: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Class times are from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm following the Ascension Parish School System's calendar. For the 2017-2018 school year, we will begin class on August 14 and hold an Open House on August 6 at 3pm.

Registration and Enrollment:
A $100 non-refundable registration fee is due with the completed enrollment form.

Tuition:
Tuition will be $200 a month for the 1, 2 and 3 year old classes and $240 plus a one-time $50 supply fee for the 4 year old class. Tuition will be due on the first of the month (August-May). There will be no refunds or deductions for illness, absence or school holidays, scheduled or unscheduled. Our budget is planned to include these days and is based on the entire year.

Snacks and Supplies:
A mid-morning snack will be provided. Children will bring their own sack lunch each day. Supplies such as diapers and sippy cups must be sent with the child as needed..

Curriculum:
Our daily program consists of learning through Bible stories, music, and crafts. Our 3 and 4 year olds also learn how to get ready for kindergarten, participate in science experiments, and the 4 year olds begin writing using the program called "Handwriting Without Tears." All activities are planned according to the children's age and ability.

Class Size:
There will be 1 teacher per 7 children.
