Train a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.
PROVERBS 22:6 (NIV)
Living Hope Early Learning & Childcare Center (formerly Good Shepherd's), provides parents and their children a warm and loving Christ-centered environment. Our program provides a safe environment, learning experiences, and caring relationships that parents seek for their young children.
Our center is open year-round from 6:45am-5:30pm, Monday through Friday, except major holidays and 2 & 1/2 staff inservice days. We provide care for children from 6 weeks to 11 years old.
Our Early Childhood Learning Programs are available for 2- and 3-year olds, September through the end of May, from 8:15-11:15am. Three to five days attendance is an option if space is available.
Our Summer Program is available June – August for those ages 5-10. Our program consists of field trips, arts and crafts, park days, and bike days.
Many of the children in our programs continue on to Living Hope Lutheran Elementary School. This allows our families to bring their children to one safe place where siblings may see each other throughout the day.
Living Hope follows child/staff ratios according to state regulations. Our teachers are trained specifically to nurture and teach children. Every teacher has state level training in the early childhood profession. In keeping with our state's licensing requirements, we also mandate 25 hours of in-service training each year on topics such as: CPR, First Aid, and child development. It is very important to us that our teachers stay current.
We are blessed to be at capacity and beyond for our infant through 2 year old groups!!
Our next projected opening for these age groups is June 2024 (Tours for the openings will begin to be scheduled in early November 2023 )
We have 2 openings for our 3 year old early learning class in fall of 2023.
