Since 1983, the staff of Wee Care have provided excellent Christian education to preschool-aged children in the Stewartville community. We look forward to working with your children!

Our state-licensed, two-year Christian preschool has been enriching the lives of children and families since 1983. We stand by a philosophy that each child will develop, through Christian education and guidance, a good self-image and respect for others.

Never exceeding a 10:1 ratio of students to staff, our classes educate the whole child through a variety of academic, language, and social development activities. Classes utilize educational opportunities such as imaginative play, music, writing, fine and large motor skill development, story time, and STEAM activities.  This is all done in a caring, Christian environment.

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.
