At Little Saints, we recognize that each child is a unique individual who requires nurturing and guidance to develop. The Little Saints program is designed to encourage the spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth of each child. Our approach to learning is child-centered, with self-selection an important aspect of our activities. A variety of developmentally appropriate activities are available to encourage the process of learning in a "hands-on" environment.
It is our belief that the child's parents are the most important people in their child's life. For that reason, Little Saints encourages parent participation and strives to form a parent/teacher/school partnership.
Our strategies for partnership include:
Over 25 years experience in early childhood education
Low classroom ratios
Daily interaction between teachers and parents
Daily reports and newsletters
Two parent/teacher conferences
Posted classroom lesson plans and daily schedule
Parent education night
