The Little Rays program is an introduction to our Pre K through social interaction, stories, exercise, music and crafts, all led by experienced teachers. First and foremost this program is a fun-loving, faith-filled, caring, Christ-centered environment. We want this first experience with school to be a happy one.

Our program offers fun, curriculum-based activities that will introduce your child to learning while reinforcing what he or she already knows.
