  • Have daily opportunities for developing self-expression through music, movement, drama and art.
  • Experience a safe and happy environment in which children can develop their large and small motor skills.

Our Mission Statement:
St. John's Lutheran Childcare exists to provide a Christian environment that nourishes the soul, mind and body of our young children by providing them care, comfort and love.

Our Philosophy:
St John's Lutheran Childcare believes God creates each child with unique and special gifts that can be nurtured through creative and flexible activities that encourage growth and development as a child of God.


Childcare is open year round from 7:00 AM to 5:45 PM Monday through Friday. We are closed on the following holidays:
  • Memorial Day
  • July 4th
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
  • New Year's Eve and New Year's Day
  • Good Friday

Children must be at least 2 years old, potty trained, and able to demonstrate self-help skills. 

Childcare is separate from St. John's Lutheran School with its own director and staff. While Childcare is intended to be a mission arm of the congregation, the Childcare program is planned to be self-sufficient, generating the income needed to pay its operating expenses. The cost of Childcare for the 2016-17 school year is $5.20 per hour.

The Childcare Room is similar to the classrooms in that it provides teacher-led activities and is equipped with learning centers and educational materials. It is a place where our preschoolers can go after their morning classes or on days when they do not have class.

Our Childcare provides a loving opportunity to reach out with the Gospel to the unchurched in our community.
