Our Mission

The Little Lambs Christian Center (LLCC) at Peace Lutheran Church believes in preparing and educating young children to share the faith, grow in faith and build for eternity.

Our Vision

The Peace Lutheran Little Lambs Christian Center wants to touch and nurture the lives of children and families with the love and saving knowledge of Jesus, through age-appropriate learning experiences in a loving and safe environment.

Our Philosophy

It is a known fact that the early education of a child is the most significant education he or she receives. However, an early childhood experience integrated with Christianity provides a child with added richness. Not only are his or her mental, emotional, physical and social needs recognized, but also his or her spiritual needs. The goal of our Center is to develop well-rounded Christian characteristics in all God’s children.

Program and Care Goals

  1. Spiritual Development Develop an awareness of God in daily living and Christian learning.
  2. Physical Development Provide activities for the development of basic skills and coordination, and development in large and small muscle growth.
  3. Social/Emotional Development Provide opportunities to help children become aware of their feelings and emotions for themselves and others, and to discover their God-given talents.
  4. Education Development Provide hands-on learning experiences in a multitude of ways that will help children develop their skills in language, math, art, music, science and religion.

In recognizing these needs, Little Lambs Christian Center will provide each child with a Christian atmosphere where Christian education and values can be planted and nurtured.
