Little Feet Playschool is a family home daycare, licensed, and dedicated to nurturing children in a Christian environment that is founded on Biblical truths and values. The daycare is operated by a former elementary school teacher who has a genuine love for children and passion for education. Although her license allows her to operate the daycare independently, she has chosen to employ a team of 3 other part time members who share the same love and goals she does in order to provide a better experience for the children. They understand the importance of supporting each child in their God given curiosity to learn through inquiry, exploration, and play. They enjoy every day they get to serve, encourage, and explore with a group of children
Little Feet Playschool works as a team to exhibit the following 5 core values:
Faith-Our faith is the basis of everything we do. We believe that teaching our children to love the Lord and walk in His teachings will set them up for abundant successes in this life, and life eternal.
Structure- We know that routines and structure provide a sense of security for children and they learn best in an environment that is consistent with rules and procedures. We have a daily schedule of lessons, games, and activities to support each child socially, mentally, and physically. Most of the activities (with the exception of an extended nap time) are broken up into 30 minute increments to keep these young kiddos interested and participating with their best energy.
Respect- We behave and talk to each individual in a way that shows respect. We respect each child, each team member, and each family we serve. We teach the children to follow the “Golden Rule; to treat others as you want to be treated.”
Belonging- We put conscious effort into learning about each individual; about their likes, experiences, and ideas. We believe and teach them that they are a valuable part to the group. We consistently teach them this through specific games, lessons, and in how we handle challenges.
Family- We work as a team with families. We keep open communication and schedule once a quarter family events to show the children they have a community of people who love them.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. From the scriptures we learn about the One God that created us; we learn that He loves us and we can have a relationship with Him. From the scriptures, we gain wisdom about how to live peaceably, in an abundant and blessed life. We gain knowledge about life and the things God created. We believe the Bible gives the true history of the Earth, Universe, Humanity, and God’s relationship to mankind as the Father in creation, and the Loving savior, in Jesus Christ.
The Bible instructs us to teach these things diligently to our children (Deuteronomy 6:7) We believe that children are a heritage from the Lord (Psalms 127:3) and should be instructed on the path that is lit by the Word of God (Proverbs 22:6, Psalms 119:105). We believe the greatest blessing in life is to teach a child that they have a God who loves them and has a plan to give them a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
OUR MOTTO: Little Feet – Big Footprints
Our team is committed to showing each child that they have a unique and special ‘footprint’ to make in society. We like to tell them that, “Little Feet are making big footprints on Washington Street,” but we will teach them that they have a God given purpose to better whatever community they’re in.
