We believe that children need support in order to develop spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, socially and physically.  We want children to be able to:

  • Develop ways to express themselves through language, music and art.
  • Develop independence, self-control, social skills and motor skills through a variety of activities.
  • Develop a positive self esteem.
  • Develop relationships with other children and caring adults.

We believe that parents and families also need support.  Lakeshore Little People's Place seeks to create an environment where parents can feel comfortable and secure leaving their children.  We work in partnership with parents and invite parent communication and participation.

We believe that our faith should shape the way that we care for children.  Since our God is a God of all creation, our children are involved in many things, from painting and singing to counting and speaking – all of which show evidence of our Creator.  In addition, there are activities that specifically show that our faith is evident:  prayer at meals, Bible stories, memory verses, religious songs and the celebration of religious holidays.  Whether specifically referenced or not, our faith in a loving God informs all of the activities that we engage in.
