Matthew 5:16

Our mission is to provide a faith-based, fun, and hands on curriculum to fully prepare students, ages 0-6, for their next stage: spiritually, emotionally, cognitively, and relationally.

Classes and Programs


Infant and Toddler
We provide safe and loving care to children from the newborn stages to 24months old.  All infants and toddlers go home with a detailed report of their meals, naps, and achievements for the day.

Advanced Early Education
Children aged 2 to 3 years old learn about a different shape, color, number, and letter each week, as well as a bible verse each month.  Every day we teach about a different concept (like science, animal, holiday, character, and more).

Children aged 4 to 5 years old continue to learn more about the concepts they’ve learned in earlier classes.  Pre-K students are preparing to enter Kindergarten with us at Little Lites, or at a different school.  They’ll learn everything that is required to enter Kindergarten, like writing and counting, the foundations of phonics, how to hold pencils and scissors, as well as how to follow classroom expectations, and much more.

Early Elementary
Our Kindergarten and First Grade programs have proven to set children up for great success academically as well as with personal growth.  Our teachers deliver high quality lesson plans, and promote academic excellence.  Read more about our Kindergarten and First Grade programs below…

Elementary School Breaks and Camps
