Welcome to St. John's Lutheran Early Learning Center (ELC). We provide children with early learning experiences in an environment founded on Christian love. We offer programs for children six weeks old and up.
The ELC is part of St. John's Lutheran Church and School. We are members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) and are in full agreement with their teachings. The ELC follows many policies set for the entire school.
We look forward to working with you and your child!
The mission of St. John's Lutheran School and Early Learning Center is to make disciples of Jesus by providing Christ-centered education that prepares students for lives of Christian service.
Our Goals and Objectives
The objectives of St. John's ELC program are to teach young children and their families about God's love and His plan for salvation, guide them in applying their faith to life and in sharing that faith with others, and provide them with spiritual and educational support.
St. John's takes seriously its obligation to teach and train children in accordance to Jesus' command, "Go and make disciples of all nations...teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20) Thus the goal for the ELC program is to nurture and train Jesus' lambs to follow him in all that they do.
Although parents have been given the primary responsibility for training their children, the church is to assist the parents to train children in the knowledge and instruction of the Lord. Complete cooperation between home and church is necessary for the welfare of the children.
Philosophy of Education and Areas of Development
We believe that it is our duty to provide children with early learning experiences in an environment founded on Christian love. We will strive to meet the spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs of each child in a developmentally appropriate manner.
