Little Lambs Classroom: 2 - 3 years old
The Little Lambs Classroom serves children 2 to 3 years of age. To be eligible for this class, the child must be 2 years old on or before September 1st. Potty training is not required. The teacher to child ratio in this class is 1:5. The class has capacity for 10 children.
This classroom is play-based as children are learning to separate from parents for the first time and socialize with peers. Children learn to speak, understand personal hygiene, grow in independence and most importantly experience God's love through our caring teachers. Teachers support the developmental growth of each child, setting the classroom with interest based and thematic activities, allowing children to experiment with new things daily.
Each morning, children gather to sing songs and hear a bible story. The Bible Time curriculum is a "Character of God" study. Each week, the Little Lambs will hear a new bible story with a title "God is...." or "Jesus is....". GPA desires our Little Lambs to know who God is and how much He loves each of them. After bible time, the Little Lambs go to the table to "journal" on their Bible Sheets. They are given opportunities to repeat the bible verse and respond to the bible story through a reflection question or a declaration. Teachers and parents are amazed how much a Little Lamb can understand who God is through our daily Bible Time. Teachers write a specific blessing for each child every day.
