We use Little Lambs Curriculum. What Is Little Lambs?

 

Little Lambs is an evangelistic program for all ages. Its main purpose is to introduce young children to the Bible stories about God and his Son, Jesus. It is our hope that each child will experience God’s love in Jesus and begin to respond to that love as the Holy Spirit plants seeds in each heart. Little Lambs (and Story Hour, a companion program for preschool and kindergarten children) was developed to complement Coffee Break, an evangelistic Bible study program for women. Little Lambs program is divided into six units as outlined below, are intended to span a period of one year. Each unit is divided into one or two mini-units or themes. Unit 1: God’s World (creation stories from the book of Genesis) Unit 2: God’s People (stories about Old Testament Bible characters) Unit 3: Jesus, God’s Son (stories about Christmas and Jesus’ early work) Unit 4: Jesus’ Work (parables and miracles from the New Testament) Unit 5: Jesus’ Love (Palm Sunday, Good Friday/Easter, and Ascension stories) Unit 6: Jesus’ Helpers (stories about Peter and Paul from the book of Acts). This program also includes four Getting Acquainted sessions designed to introduce children to your Little Lamb’s routine, to God’s love in Jesus, to the Bible as God’s book, and to prayer.

 

In addition, four sessions are planned to help children celebrate secular holidays (Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving) from a Christian perspective. Songs, action rhymes, and patterns are for children of all ages to learn and enjoy. Songs for Little Lambs, a CD featuring 34 songs by various artists will be included in our routines. Take-home story cards, one for each session, present the Bible stories in simple words that our children can understand and offer ideas for families to reinforce the biblical truths at home. The front of each card illustrates one scene from the story with beautiful four-color art.

 

Play-Centered Approach.

 

Because the young child’s world is shaped by play, Little Lambs uses a play-centered approach to teach stories and truths from God’s Word. The importance of play in the lives of twos and threes cannot be overemphasized.

Play activities...

■ stimulate the development of thought and intelligence.

■ build self-esteem.

■ encourage imagination and creativity.

■ develop problem-solving skills.

■ require use of small- and large-motor skills.

■ promote socialization.

 

Each session plan offers a variety of ideas for play center activities. During play time the children are free to play where they wish; some may choose to Introduction to Little Lambs 13 try out all the centers while others may prefer to play in only one or two. As we play along with the children and offer ideas, you’ll be amazed at their imagination and creativity. We encourage flexibility; listen to the children, and follow their lead. When significant play happens, stay back, observe, and delight in our little ones!

Infant Program

Based on the state of CA's regulations, an infant is a child under two years old. We accept infants of all ages including new-borns. Our infants are provided with quality individual guidance and a social, group setting to assist them in the constant stages of growth and development they will encounter.  As we all know infants tend to be on their own schedule, therefore, we adapt to the needs of your baby based on their bodies sleeping and feeding habits. We help them develop and enhance their motor skills and expose them to constant communication through talking, reading, hand gestures, and singing. When physically able, our infants are encouraged to join the older children (toddlers) in their day to day schedule and are provided with the age appropriate supplies so they are able to participate in group and hands-on activities with the older children. They will participate in our story time, music sessions, and many other stimulating activities we provide for your little ones.

We offer plenty of age appropriate toys, lessons, and books while incorporating basic Spanish, arts and craft activities, music sessions, computer sessions, sensory play, role playing, building activities, physical activities (sports, exercises) and much more. Here at Angels from Heaven we encourage the use of manners and kindness, and show them how to react to situations they encounter on a daily basis in a positive way through the sharing of toys, using their words, communication with teachers, etc. Every child develops at their own pace, and has their own unique personality therefore, you can be comfortable knowing that your child is going to receive the proper individual attention, guidance and respect to help mold them into the best individual that they can be.
