About our Program

Our Philosophy

The educational philosophy of Little Blessings Preschool is based on meeting the developmental needs of young children.  It is our intent to provide a loving, play-based program which will the meet the needs of each child’s individual emotional, cognitive, social, and physical needs in a Christian environment.  

Love is our foundation and is something that cannot be measured or described fully.  “We love because God first loved us, 1 John 4:19.” Love is a combination of positive feelings in our hearts, love helps us feel gracious, kind, caring, valued, and accepted.  Love motivates us to be willing and generous, to forgive, trust, and be patient.  

Rooted in our child centered, play-based approach, is the goal that each unique child learns best through play in an enriching and loving environment. Each child is taught to think creatively and critically so they may be successful in an ever-changing world. Our philosophy is based on meeting the social, emotional, developmental and educational needs of each child. 

About Good Shepherd

Our school began in 1999 as an outreach ministry of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church for the young children of our community and their families. We originally began at the Madison Campus as a morning program, but soon expanded to morning and afternoon classes. Growth of Good Shepherd to the Verona Campus necessitated the need for a second location for Little Blessings. This expansion took place in the fall of 2006 to serve families in the Verona area.
