Little Angels Early Learning Program
A Children’s Ministry of Good Shepherd U.M.C.
At Little Angels we strive to provide a safe and loving environment where each child feels valued and important. Our goal is to build a sense of trust as a foundation for the learning of God’s love. Our program focuses on academic and social skills along with arts and crafts, music and movement, and a scheduled play/gym time. Our age-appropriate program provides children with opportunities to learn through many different mediums including the necessary skills needed for Kindergarten. Your child will get a firm foundation on which they can grow physically, spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually.
We are now accepting registrations for the Fall 2021 school year!
Thank you for all your patience during these difficult times. We have been staying up to date with the church in-person gathering rules. We are truly looking forward to seeing you all very soon!!
