Provide children with staff who love children and are educated, skilled, professional, creative, and value interacting with them.
Promote the acceptance of all children and model an environment of respect for each other.
Promote the understanding of learning through play.
Assist children in learning to think for themselves and develop problem-solving skills.
To teach by our lives and from the Bible: the truth that God loves each one of us, that Jesus is our Savior and friend, and that God's Holy Spirit can lead us.
Maintain low teacher/child ratios creating more learning interaction and care for each child.
Make available opportunities for parents to participate in their child's day at Little Lights.
Value each member of our staff for their contribution and effectiveness to our team in serving children and their families.
