Welcome to Our Center!

Enriching the lives of children and families since 1983!

Never exceeding a 10:1 ratio of students to staff, our classes educate the whole child providing opportunities to grow academically, socially, and spiritually. Our center prepares students not only for kindergarten, but for life in our community and our world. Through the personal attention of our staff, children experience developmentally-appropriate activities, social interaction, guided play, field trips, story time, music, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) activities. This all takes place in a loving, Christian environment.  We stand by a philosophy that each child will develop, through Christian education and guidance, a good self-image and respect for others.

Wee Care is operated by St. John’s Lutheran Church and admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions polities, scholarships and other school-administered programs.
