Schedule | Curriculum | Teacher Profiles | Tuition

In the Ladybug class children are introduced to school in a fun, loving and Christian environment. They are encouraged to use all areas of the classroom, Cognitive, Block, Dramatic play, Self-help Art and Reading/Books as they play.   They have their own playground with structures and equipment geared for 2 to 3 year old children. Throughout the day we offer a variety of hands-on sensory and art activities. The children have one Circle Time a day that includes songs, movement, stories and learning concepts. One day a month the director takes over circle time for "Bible Time" where simple Bible lessons are told. As the youngest class at Little Angels, the Ladybug class focuses on social and emotional growth along with nurturing the development of each unique individual.

Cindy Ornelas

My name is Cindy Ornelas and I am the Lead Teacher in the Ladybug Room. I graduated from the Early Childhood Education Program at Santa Barbara City College. I am also First Aid and CPR certified.

I have worked with Mary Lopez and many of the other teachers for over 20 years.

I started the Ladybug Room many years ago at another preschool and when the school closed, helped open Little Angels and continued the Ladybug Class here. I am proud to be working with children for so many years, in a career that I truly love.


My name is Katy and I am a teacher in the Ladybug class. I've worked in a school setting since 2006 with preschool aged children up to second grade. I've enjoyed working with the different ages but enjoy the preschool years the most. I am so blessed to be part of LAPS and always look forward to being a part of a child's learning experience and growth. I am also First Aid and CPR certified.


My name is Eileen Gonzalez and I am the assistant in the Ladybug Class. I was born and raised in Santa Barbara. I worked in the banking industry for many years until my children began preschool. Once they started preschool I changed careers and worked at their preschool as an assistant for 9 years. I have been at Little Angels since it’s opening in 2002. I am also First Aid and CPR certified.
