Who are the Staff Members for Little Lambs?

The Director is Lynda Clousing. The Associate Director is Beth Bardolph. Kate Hanchett is Session Coordinator for the Tuesday and Wednesday sessions.

We rely on our faithful volunteers who work weekly with the children, supported by substitutes. Some of the staff participants are certified teachers, and others are dedicated volunteers who love children. All of our volunteers are screened, trained, and work closely with the Director, the Associate Director, and the Session Coordinator. Our staff includes the following teaching positions, with the maximum student/teacher ratios indicated:

  • Bible teachers (Maximum of 10 children/1 adult)

  • Creative Learning teachers (Maximum of 10 children/1 adult)

  • Music teachers (Maximum of 20 children/3 adults)

  • Free Play teachers (Maximum of 20 children/3 adults)

  • Craft teachers (Maximum of 20 children/5 adults)

If you are interested in volunteering, you may indicate that on your child’s registration or email [email protected]. Volunteers must attend a virtual or in-person curriculum training every year, must pass a background screening and a DCFS mandatory reporter training which are repeated every three years. Each volunteer receives a binder with detailed schedules and instructions
