About the Provider

Description: Little Lambs Daycare Ministry has successfully completed the Family and Social Services Administration, Division of Family Resources, Bureau of Child Care Voluntary Certification Program (VCP). The Voluntary Certification Program requires unlicensed registered ministries to meet specific standards regarding food and nutrition, health and safety, and special requirements for programs offering infant and toddler care.

The Indiana Association for Child Care Resource and Referral (IACCRR) is implementing the Hoosier Quality Child Care Expansion Project working directly with unlicensed child care programs to support their efforts to meet the standards. Marsha Thompson, Executive Director of IACCRR states, “IACCRR is committed to increasing the capacity of high quality child care in Indiana. We know high quality child care is essential to healthy communities, school readiness and lifelong learning. This program illustrates our effectiveness in working toward our goal.”

“We decided to access the extra support from the Indiana Association for Child Care Resource and Referral because we want to ensure that we are providing the best care for the families we serve,” says Amy Hayes, program director at Little Lambs. “By obtaining the VCP, we show that we are dedicated to children and that we will continue to better our Ministry to ensure a safe and nurturing environment. All children should have access to safe, caring, and adequate early childhood care.” Quality Expansion Specialist Yully Ortega mentored the Little Lambs staff through the VCP process. States Hayes,“Yully assisted us in staff trainings, networking, understanding VCP regulations, and in finding resources to help us meet our goals.”

Little Lambs Daycare Ministry is open from Monday through Friday, 5:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and accepts children between the ages of 6 weeks and 12 years. Currently there are openings in the Infant and Before/After school programs.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Children AND staff are treated horribly. Children and their parents are disrespected on a daily basis. Parents' personal lives are talked about and gossiped about amongst director and staff on a daily basis. Conversations held in front of children are completely innapproprite. Children hit, pinch, bite, and kick other children and no actions are taken.. Nor are parents informed that these things have happened to their children. Children are constantly being switched around to different classrooms and have different teachers on a daily basis. There is never any kind of consistency or routine. Parents are told that children are doing activities that are not really being done. 'Lesson plans' are created by staff but they are never followed. Gloves and hair nets are never worn while handling and preparing food. There is mold inside of and under tables where children are being served food. There are bug problems that continue to be a problem and are not resolved. The ONLY time that state 'guidelines and regulations' are followed are when state has scheduled a time with the director to come in. They are let know, by state, a day and time in which they will arrive to be sure the regulations are being followed. Only then, does staff wear gloves and hair nets, and follow state rules etc. As soon as 'state' walks out of the door, staff and director go back to breaking rules and guidelines on a daily basis. This place is a chaotic mess and I do NOT reccomend it to anyone.
