Welcome to St. Francis' Little Lambs Program

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School's Early Childhood Program, we affectionately call our Little Lambs.  The Little Lambs program strives to provide a nurturing environment rich in experiences necessary to promote social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth for our preschool, pre-k and kindergarten students. With a faith-based focus and caring staff we create a warm and happy place for children to learn. We bridge the gap between home and school for our youngest students to create a blend of developmentally appropriate academics and play in order to foster the whole child.

Here at St. Francis we believe that:

  •      Each student is a special child of God
  •      Children learn best about God’s world through experimentation and exploration.
  •      Developmentally appropriate activities and play are the best avenues of learning
  •      A loving environment fosters children's ability to develop to their fullest potential
  •      The family and home life is the primary place for each child’s learning
  •      Building relationships with parents and promoting family participation in class benefits children's success

The early childhood staff and I are very passionate about working here at St. Francis with the youngest of God's gifts.
