Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Little Fishes Preschool was founded in 1993 as a ministry of Presbyterian Church of the Lakes. Just as we believe that Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of church and home, so do we uphold Him as the center of the educational experience at Little Fishes Preschool. We are called to minister to each child as a unique child of God and to acknowledge the nurturing of our children's development as a true expression of the Christian faith.
Our school strives to provide every child in the program with the opportunity to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially and spiritually to his/her full potential in an environment of love, learning and fun"
Excerpted from the preschool's website

Handling Separation: From the Director

Parents are encouraged to develop a consistent morning routine before the first day of preschool and to talk with the child in happy, enthusiastic tones about preschool and playing with friends. If a child is have a difficult transition, parents may be asked to begin with a shortened school day until the child is accustomed to the classroom.
