​Purpose and Philosophy

Little People Loving and Learning has been developed to provide a safe and nurturing atmosphere where young children can grow and explore as individuals.

We are committed to empowering children by teaching and modeling Christian love and values while promoting self-respect and respect for others.  We will provide developmentally appropriate activities designed to stimulate learning of skills necessary for entering kindergarten.

Through whole group activities, small groups, center time and individual attention we plan for children to thrive in a hands-on environment where exploration and creativity are encouraged.  We value the power of play and respect the importance of a robust and well-balanced curriculum. 

We would love to hear from you!  For more information, please contact Director Erin Shore at

I Believe in Children...

I believe in children--little ones, big ones, chubby and thin ones.  There is faith in their eyes, love in their touch, hope in their attitude.  I thrill with them at life's joys, run with them through tall grasses, bow with them in worship, and hold them close in tragedy.  I believe in children--the fragile dream of yesterday, life's radiant reality today, and the vibrant stuff of tomorrow.  Yes, I believe in children, for wherever I go, to the mountain village, industrial center, or open country, I find yesterday's children who are nurtured in the things of Christ at work in the building of the Kingdom of God.

Our program is open to any child ages 1-5 provided that the preschool can appropriately meet the needs of that child.  We have four classes: 1-year-old, 2-year-old, 3-year-old, 4-year-old/PreK class.  Children are placed in the appropriate class based on age and individual development.  We use the Moore Country School cut-off date of August 31st to determine class placement. One-year-olds come two days each week.  Two-year-olds come three days each week.  The three-year-old and four-year-old/Pre-k classes attend five days each week.  Pre-School hours are from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
