Little Lambs began in 1987 as part of a Christian School in Williamsport. Holly Tillman established the preschool with the heart’s desire to have a school that supported the Christian values of young families in the community. We also set a high standard for training the children for their formal education by giving the children a secure, safe and stimulating environment to learn in.
Our concentration is repetition with variety in small classes. We started with three classes with an enrollment of 30 and 3 staff. We now have about 65 students and 10 staff. Our program runs September thru May with a concluding theme dress up graduation. We then run a smaller summer program from June through August that includes kindergarten graduates.
Please check out our available preschool and childcare programs.
The main teaching staff has either a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education (ECE) or related field, Associates Degree in ECE or a Child Development Associates Certificate.
