For over a half of a century, St. John’s Lutheran Church has been serving the educational and child care needs of our community through St. John’s Child Care Center and Preschool Programs. We provide a stable, comfortable and safe environment with positive experiences to enhance each child’s self-image and confidence level.

Through activities, children will be given opportunities to promote social interaction, emotional growth, literacy, language and cognitive skills. We also encourage activities to promote the development of large and small muscle skills. Individual creative abilities are supported and preschool readiness skills are provided as needed.

 

 

In our caring and accepting atmosphere, children develop a sense of trust and security. Here, children can explore new materials, as well as, their own feelings in acceptable and socially appropriate ways.

We teach children about people of other cultures, customs and religions, as well as emphasizing their own backgrounds. While religion is not taught, the setting is a Christian Church and Christian holidays and symbols will be recognized.

The staff of St. John’s Child Care Center and Preschool Program is committed to the continuing development of a creative curriculum and does not permit discrimination because of race, color, sex, age, disability or national origin. Input from parents is always encouraged and welcomed.
