Early Childhood Enrichment Center

15 months - 2 Years

0142_St_Paul_BelvedereStudioThroughout the year, parents of very young children come to the St. Paul Lutheran School campus looking for the best. They are, of course, seeking safety for their precious little one. They seek bright, welcoming classrooms and excellent facilities. They desire a proven track record of service and an on-going striving for improvement.

But they are also seeking a place of love, of patience, of nurture and unconditional love. They long for a place that uses developmentally appropriate practices to help their child learn about the world and about him or herself. And often, they also seek a place where God is honored and the teachings of the Bible are shared in story and song, and then practiced in real life.

When families visit our Early Childhood Enrichment Center program, they are seeking all these things and they find them.
