Little Pilgrim Preschool's teachers are selected for their warmth and understanding of young children. All of our staff meet the Florida state background screening and are licensed in First Aid and CPR. Their educational training meets, but is certainly not limited to, a 40 hour child care training course, as well as 15 hours of continuing education annually.
Our classrooms are kept to a low teacher-student ratio in order to provide a nurturing loving environment for the children & teachers. We pride ourselves on creating a family atmosphere with the children and the parents, and create strong bonds to tie family life in with school life.
Little Pilgrim Preschool is owned and operated by First Congregational United Church of Christ under the direct supervision of the Board of Education of the church. However, all backgrounds, races, sexes, color, or origin are welcome.
WE ARE A NUT FREE SCHOOL! This includes peanuts AND tree nuts.
We have an open door policy. Please feel free to stop by our school any time to visit and observe classes. Our parents are our best references, so we recommend visiting during drop off or pick up, but you're welcome any time! We invite volunteers, community workers, and others of interest to join us. New children and new parents bring new interests and talents to our school.
Our curriculum is designed to meet all aspects of early childhood learning such as:
- Personal and Social Development
