Community registration for Little Lambs Preschool of Immanuel Lutheran Church for the 2020-21 school year will begin March 16 in the church office. The school is located at 511 Russell Road, DeKalb.
Little Lambs is a Christian preschool, established in 1996 and licensed by the state of Illinois. Classes are available for children ages 3 to 5 years old. Each class period runs from 9 a.m. to noon with four class choices: Monday, Wednesday and Friday; Tuesday and Thursday; Monday through Thursday; or Monday through Friday. Children must be 4 years old by Sept. 1 to enroll in the four- or five-day option.
The primary purpose, according to a news release, is to provide a loving atmosphere to encourage growth for children and their families through quality programming in a safe environment that fosters social, academic and spiritual growth.
Little Lambs Preschool is not a daycare center, but rather a traditional preschool offering classes to prepare children for the academic years ahead. Using the guidelines of the area school districts, classes work on their kindergarten readiness skills.
Little Lambs Preschool is affiliated with DeKalb County Coordinated Child Care and has earned the Illinois ExceleRate Bronze rating.
