Little Lights is an early childhood program in a progressive Christian church in Lincoln Park
Little Lights strives to create a loving, safe, and progressive Christian environment that parents and children can trust. Little Lights nurtures each child’s curiosity and strengthens their love for learning. We believe it is vital to stimulate independence and social interactions through play. We nurture your child's strengths and encourage skills that are still developing, realizing that every child learns at their own pace.
This program is designed to create a positive experience for kids separating from mom/dad/caretaker by promoting gradual separation with a parent or caregiver staying nearby until the children show that they are ready to be on their own.
We model and facilitate problem-solving strategies, build empathy and develop self-regulation skills. Through hands-on learning and play, children will gain a greater sense of themselves and the community/classroom surrounding them.
