What Little Lambs
Has to offer your family
Little Lambs Learning Center is a ministry of Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church located on Maple Grove Road in Duluth, MN. Being Christ-centered means we offer more than just education with growth and development. We teach them about their Savior, Jesus Christ. Pastor Tim Denney is integral in the preschool and our teachers have the deepest concern for your children’s spiritual well-being.
In the two preschool classrooms, Little Lambs Learning Center utilizes a mixed-age group approach to learning. There are numerous benefits to having our three, four, and five-year-olds combined. Our older children are able to learn leadership skills and can help guide the younger children in their development. The children learn how to work more cooperatively as a group and will work towards a common goal. These groupings also foster positive social interactions while decreasing negative ones. Mixed-age classrooms can also benefit self-esteem and confidence.
Our Toddler Program is designed to be an interactive experience between the classroom, the teacher, and the children. Toddlers will learn to count, formulate sentences, discover their artistic and musical abilities, differentiate between their emotions, and learn about the world around them. Each child’s day is structured into learning blocks that focus on core concepts: physical development and health, language and literacy, creative arts, mathematics, social-emotional development, science, and social studies.
