Tribute to the late Miss Martha Henderson

steps to heavenmartha hendersonOn December 31, 2020, God took Martha home to be with him and her husband Doug plus the other people that went before her.  Martha, was so loved and such a great asset to our classroom.

We all miss her dearly.  We are very blessed to have  her years of projects saved according to the theme we are working on in her handwriting. Miss Martha is still part of Little Cherubs Christian Preschool and will remain part of it as long as Little Cherubs is in existence.

Rachel and Jason

“Little Cherubs Christian Preschool is both a nurturing and stimulating preschool.  Our daughter is learning social skills like sharing, taking turns and following directions all through play.  The classroom has a variety of play areas that appeal to all kids.  The 3 year olds class has an appropriate amount of structure that allows the kids to learn how to transition between activities and focus on a lesson.  Daily activities may include painting, baking, show-and-tell and going for a nature walk outside on the church grounds.  We especially like that our daughter is learning bible stories and learning about God.  The teachers really enjoy working with the children.  They get to know the families, not just the students.  The teacher provides a daily feedback sheet which lists the activities that occurred, what was served for snack and specific notes on my daughter.  Little Cherubs is a great place for a child to begin their school years.”

Laura Kelly – Cheshire, CT

“The Little Cherubs Christian Preschool in Cheshire is the best.  Highly recommended.  The teachers truly care about the children.  Teachers are certified.  The curriculum prepares them for Kindergarten within a Christian setting.  Student to teacher ratio is great.  A small class is bright and spacious with many stations.”

Rachel Johnson – Cheshire, CT

“My daughter was a student in the Little Cherubs Christian Preschool in 2012-2014.  She liked this place and the teachers taught the children in a very caring way.  Joanne Holstein gave me a personal report on what my daughter was doing for every class, which is awesome.  My daughter learned in cooking “lab”, she enjoyed the cookies/ food they baked together, and introduced the food to our family.  When she graduated, she knew how to spell her full name, memorize her address and phone number (which is important) and sang a song from “Frozen” movie.  She enjoyed learning bible lessons and sang songs along with the pastor of the church.  The facility itself is spacious and bright. On warmer days, the children can go out to play in the yard behind the building (which is very big and nice) and explore the nature.”
