Welcome to – Nurturing Young Saints in Our Community

At LuluBee and Kewi, we are committed to fostering the growth of young individuals in our community, helping them discover their unique talents and reminding them that they are cherished Children of the Most High God. Our mission is to provide the support and guidance they need to build a strong foundation for their future.

Discovering Their Divine Identity

As children grow and navigate the ups and downs of life, it's not uncommon for them to struggle with self-identity. At LuluBee and Kewi, we believe it's essential for every child to recognize their divine origin and the love that surrounds them. Here, we take pride in reinforcing the notion that each child is fearfully and wonderfully made by their creator, Our Heavenly Father. Sometimes, all it takes is a gentle reminder.

Guidance for a Bright Future

One-on-one interactions and dedicated time spent with a child can be transformative in helping them develop a better understanding of who they are. By actively listening and engaging in meaningful activities, we create an environment where children can explore their thoughts, feelings, and aspirations. This process sets the stage for establishing goals and dreams for their future.

Setting the Path: 10 Age-Appropriate Goals

We understand that setting goals can be a powerful tool in guiding children toward success. To assist parents and caregivers, we've compiled a list of ten age-appropriate goals for children from birth to twenty years old. These goals are designed to help nurture their growth and development at every stage of life:

  1. Age 0-2: Explore the World - Encourage curiosity through sensory play, music, and interactive toys.

  2. Age 3-5: Foster Creativity - Support artistic expression through drawing, painting, and imaginative play.

  3. Age 6-8: Develop Responsibility - Teach basic chores and personal responsibilities like making their bed or cleaning up after themselves.

  4. Age 9-11: Encourage Reading - Instill a love for reading by introducing age-appropriate books and discussing their favorite stories.

  5. Age 12-14: Cultivate Independence - Allow them to take on more responsibility for their homework and daily routines.

  6. Age 15-17: Set Academic Goals - Help them define and work towards their academic aspirations, whether it's getting good grades or pursuing a specific field of study.

  7. Age 18-20: Career Exploration - Support them in exploring potential career paths, internships, or volunteer opportunities.

  8. Age 21-25: Financial Literacy - Teach the basics of budgeting, saving, and financial responsibility as they enter adulthood.

  9. Age 26-30: Health and Wellness - Promote a healthy lifestyle by encouraging regular exercise, balanced nutrition, and stress management.

  10. Age 31-35: Giving Back - Instill the value of community involvement and philanthropy, encouraging them to make a positive impact on society.

At LuluBee and Kewi, we're here to empower children on their journey to becoming their best selves. Together, we can build a brighter future for our community, one young Saint at a time.
