  • 18 Month Old CLASS

    Mrs. Cindy and Mrs. Glenda

    This is our youngest class! They have to be 1 by May 2nd to enroll for this class. We have a max of 9 children in this classroom and this group will fill up fast! I would suggest to get on the waiting list at birth for this class, but there is always a chance of openings!

    Mrs. Cindy and Mrs. Glenda love "their babies" more than anything and can't wait to get to know yours!





  • Young 2s

    Ms. Jane and Ms. Lizzie

    This class is for the "well, we are almost 2". These are twos that have late birthdays that just barely miss the cut off for our other 2 two year old classes. If this is the case for your child, they would be in Ms. Jane's class for their first year and move to one of our other twos classes the next fall. 


    Ms. Jane 

    Jane has worked here at Little Lambs for 5 years and has been a church member here at St. John's 26 whole years! She loves her young twos group and having Ms. Liz as her aide. Did I mention Ms. Jane is a wizard at desserts- because she is. Anytime we can convince her to whip us up something, we do!


    Ms. Lizzie

    We are so grateful to have Ms. Lizzie with us this year. Mrs. Jane has taker her under her wing and they are soaring into this school year with the young 2's. We can't wait to hear about all the adventures.

We love having these three hard working ladies in the afternoon with us! Extended day is a little more relaxed on curriculum based activities but continues the structure aspect of the school schedule. They administer snack in the afternoon to their specific classes get to play and get to know your children individually through fun afternoon activities, whether that is in the classroom, playroom or outside on the playground!
