Early Childhood Ministry


Our Little Flower Ministry is dedicated to providing a spiritual and educational environment for your child in a warm and nurturing atmosphere, helping them grow in his/her love of Jesus. Prayers, songs, Bible stories, learning simple verse and special celebrations of the major times in Jesus’ life are just a few of the ways your child will grow in their relationship with God.

All our staff have experience in Early Childhood Ministry, and have been screened by the Diocese of Palm Beach to assure the safety of all children. Our ministry believes children are our greatest resource, and that they deserve a loving and nurturing environment in order to excel and reach their potential.


We look at each child as an individual and foster learning through each child’s individuality. We realize that a child’s development occurs at different intervals. Our faith based program caters to your child’s individual development stage, and includes religion, language development, physical development, art, music socialization, and self help skills.


Enrollment is open to any child ages 2 ½ who will be turning 3 on or before April of that year to 5 years olds making the Palm Beach County School cut off and provided we can meet his/her needs. Enrollment shall be granted without discrimination in regard to sex, race, religion or political belief; however, parishioners of St. Therese de Lisieux Catholic Church will be given preference.

Morning/Extended enrollment is defined as follows:

Morning program: A child who attends our program from 9a.m. to 12p.m.

Morning and Lunch Bunch Program: A child who attends our program from 8a.m. to 2p.m.
