The Bumblebee class will explore many things through play in a safe, loving and Christian atmosphere. The classroom is transformed each month into one of their themes. The children may explore the following areas of the classroom daily: Music, Blocks, Dramatic play, Cognitive, Self-help Art, Science, and Reading. Art is offered daily as well as weekly cooking. The children are exposed to various cognitive concepts in Small Circle time. One day a month the director takes over small circle for "Bible Time" where simple Bible lessons are told. In Large Circle the children will experience dance and movement through a wide array of music. On Wednesdays and Thursdays they have a music teacher to provide additional songs and movement.

Lisa Szymovicz

My name is Lisa Szymovicz and I am the Lead Teacher in the Bumblebee Class. I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education from Santa Barbara City College. I am also First Aid and CPR certified. In 1991 Mary Lopez and I opened a Preschool in Santa Barbara for a private elementary school. After it’s closing in 2002 I helped found Little Angels a few months later. We are all so proud of and love our school!

I graduated with an AS Degree in Early Childhood Education from Santa Barbara City College and I have an AA degree in Liberal Arts as well. I am also First Aid and CPR certified.


My name is Emma and I am the assistant in the Bumblebee class. I am originally from Santa Cruz California but moved here for college in 2011. I first attended Santa Barbara City College and studied Early Childhood Education and then moved on to Antioch University. There I am also studying Child Education and Development. Through my education, I have had the opportunity to volunteer locally with different ages but the preschool age is my favorite! I am also First Aid and CPR certified. I’m so happy to be at LAPS!
