OUR TEAM

It is our goal at Little Ranchers to provide each child with a happy, healthy, safe, and stimulating Christian environment. We endeavor to meet each child’s individual, cognitive, emotional, social, physical, and creative needs by providing them with many ways to learn. As they explore these various paths: dramatic play, music & movement, science, literature, Bible teaching, language skills, creative arts, they begin to acquire new knowledge. Children start to develop a positive self-concept, a sense of independence, and begin to attain the ability to express, understand, and control their feelings. In turn, they will learn to get along with others, as well as learn feelings of empathy and mutual respect among children and adults. We have a phenomenal team who love every child that walks through our doors, and it is our sincere desire to teach, train and lead every one of them.
