Record Observer - - NEWS -

GRA­SONVILLE — Lit­tle Lamb Preschool is lo­cated in Gra­sonville, about a mile from Gra­sonville Ele­men­tary School. Lit­tle Lamb has over 30 acres for ad­ven­ture and fun. The preschool has been a min­istry of Wye Bi­ble Church for 15 years. The church pro­vides a build­ing for the youngest stu­dents and the pre-k and kinder­garten­ers have class­rooms in the main church build­ing. There is also a li­brary and a des­ig­nated area for lunch as well as indoor re­cess.

Lit­tle Lamb is proud to be an ACSI mem­ber school, us­ing the Pur­pose­ful De­sign cur­ricu­lum with a blend of academic in­struc­tion and Christ-cen­tered val­ues. The school pre­pares stu­dents for their fu­ture through so­cial guid­ance, skill build­ing, rou­tines and by teach­ing them about Christ.

The staff at Lit­tle Lamb are cho­sen in­di­vid­u­ally based upon their ex­pe­ri­ence with chil­dren, be­lief in the preschool pro­gram and church val­ues as well as their ex­per­tise in the early child­hood de­vel­op­ment field. Staff mem­bers at­tend pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment classes reg­u­larly.

This year Lit­tle Lamb Preschool pro­vided classes for 2-year-olds and 3-year-olds half day and pre-k half day and whole day. LLP also has an af­ter­care pro­gram to pro­vide all day stu­dents with con­sis­tent child care while par­ents are work­ing.

The 2- and 3-year-old stu­dents are taught good so­cials skills and pro­vided lessons in lan­guage arts, be­gin­ning read­ing and math skills. Teach­ers use Bi­ble sto­ries to teach stu­dents about Je­sus and how to love each other as He loves us. Pre-k stu­dents are learn­ing more com­plex read­ing, writ­ing and math skills. The preschool teaches pho­net­ics, lan­guage arts, sci­ence, so­cial stud­ies, music, health and phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion. It of­fers field trips and in-house demon­stra­tions.

This year stu­dents at­tended Ch­e­sa­peake Bay En­vi­ron­men­tal Cen­ter, An­i­mal Resource Foun­da­tion and the Feed-A-Fam­ily pro­gram. The Gra­sonville Fire De­part­ment and the Gra­sonville Post Of­fice visited.

Hands-on ex­pe­ri­ences are re­tained in the stu­dent’s mem­ory so much bet­ter, and we have a wealth of op­por­tu­nity in our com­mu­nity to pro­vide these valu­able ex­pe­ri­ences, said Bon­nie Reamy.
