Little Fishes Preschool


was founded in 1993 as a ministry of Presbyterian Church of the Lakes, and offers part-time preschool classes for children ages 18-months through VPK.



Little Fishes Preschool was presented a certificate of achievement from the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County. The award reflects their accomplishment as “VPK Valedictorian” by ranking in the top 15% of VPK Readiness Rates compared to the whole state for the 2010-11 school year.

The VPK staff members include (left to right) Barbara Stroud, Janet Watkins, Sue Gunning, Vivian Marshall (Director), Leonda Broderick, Michelle Smith, and Patti Atcheson.



Little Fishes Preschool offers your child a loving, well-rounded, Christ centered educational experience. We use the WEE Learn curriculum series that utilizes a developmental approach to teaching preschoolers. 

Children learn to their maximum potential when age appropriate materials and resources are used. Various forms of teacher-directed play (art, puzzles, fine and gross motor activities, dramatic play, science experiments, reading, etc.) aid in the development of the whole child and are used to teach early literacy, math and science skills.

Basic Christian doctrine is woven into the curriculum and taught through activities, Bible stories and songs, prayer and modeling by the teachers. The PreK-3 and PreK-4 classes combine weekly for a short chapel service where the children are taught the fundamentals of worship as they listen to Bible stories, pray and sing.

American patriotism and the Biblical model of traditional family values are taught at Little Fishes.
