About Us / Mission
Little Lambs Christian Preschool began as a nursery program in the fall of 1988, to “Know God and Make Him Known”. We began with a small group of less than ten children and have grown to an average of 65 children each year. We became a fully licensed daycare (able to offer full day care) in 2002. While we do not have more than 32 preschool children on site at one time, along with four infants 14 months and up with six young two’s (that makes a total of 42!), our community includes so many families as we offer both full and part time. We are located at 955 Wilkes Ave. in My Church Winnipeg (formerly Immanuel Pentecostal Church).
Our families may pick and choose any half/full day combination that they would like depending on what is available. The exception is the infant and young two’s room, where part time is allowed with a match to make a full time spot.
We do follow the public school calendar from September to the end of June and are, therefore, closed for two weeks at Christmas and for Spring Break. We are closed for stat days but are open for public school inservice days. We do run a shorter day than many day cares (7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.), with half day children being dropped off or picked up at 12:15. For the last three years, we offered five weeks of summer care for 16 preschool aged children. This will be offered again on a year by year basis.
We are a loosely theme based centre with broad monthly themes; also allowing for emergent planning by staff. Our bright space is well equipped, with many choices during free play. The five rooms used during group time are for music and movement, and theme/concept activities. At our disposal is a large gym with plenty of room to move around! We also have a large, fenced outdoor space. But our biggest “selling feature” is our wonderful team of staff-most with many, many years in the field! Each one is dedicated to providing the best care and attention to our children, including praying for our families and with the children. Our intent is to partner with our families to help children reach their fullest potential physically, emotionally, socially, cognitively, and spiritually. Our Christian curriculum focuses on teaching children that they are loved and created by God, that He has a plan for their lives, and that we can pray in thankfulness, for help and direction in life.
