Little Blessings - encouraging
exploration of God’s world at a child’s own pace.
As a Christian outreach, the mission of Little Blessings Christian Childcare Center is to provide young children with a quality education that is grounded in the Holy Scriptures and exemplified by the love and teachings of Jesus Christ.
Philosophy of Education
The educational philosophy of Little Blessings is God centered and supports our statement of faith and mission statements. We believe that each child is unique and created in the image of God. Therefore, every child is accepted, honored and loved. Our aim is to incorporate Biblical principles throughout all learning opportunities and provide a Christian perspective of the world. We firmly believe that the love of Christ can be experienced early in a child’s development. Our team of early childhood educators strives to use developmentally appropriate practices, focusing on the child’s social, emotional, academic, spiritual, physical and aesthetic growth. Small class sizes allow for individual success during whole class, teacher-directed instruction. Child-directed activity centers, enriched with hands-on experiences, engage each child’s natural curiosity and encourage exploration of God’s world at a child’s own pace. While we believe that education is the responsibility of parents, Little Blessings works cooperatively with parents to implement the process of a Christian education. As a Christian childcare center, we welcome a diversity of children who can experience God’s love, grow in it and carry it into the world.
Children at Little Blessings will follow a flexible daily schedule that meets the individual needs of the diverse population of children and families served by our program, including those with cultural, language and developmental differences. The daily schedule shall include indoor and outdoor physical activities, which will allow for fine and gross motor development. The daily schedule will include opportunity for problem-solving experiences that help to formulate language development and sensory discrimination. Children will have the opportunity to express their own ideas and feeling through creative experiences in all parts of the program, including:
Arts and media
Language learning experiences
Experiences that promote self-reliance
Health education practices
We believe that the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God and contain all things necessary for salvation. We confess belief in the triune God-eternally existing in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in Jesus Christ, fully God and fully human, who lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins and the sins of the world, was resurrected from the dead and offers salvation to everyone who puts their faith and trust in Him. We believe that the Church is the community of all true believers under the sovereign Lordship of Jesus Christ whose purpose is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, to the glory of God.
