Early Learning Center

Early Learning Center

Thank you for the opportunity to introduce ourselves. We know that it’s a maddening world with pressure to make the right decision about childcare for your little ones. We know that choosing how they spend their hours while you are away matters – and who they spend those hours with matters.

That’s where we want to be different and to make a difference.

What if spiritual development was daily? What if life skills like preparing a meal, fixing a button, or planting a garden were an integral part of learning? What if playtime meant more than supervised swinging? What if manners mattered?

At First Lutheran Church Early Learning Center, our philosophy is to engage your whole child – mind, body, spirit – with the world around them, in thoughtful and meaning-filled ways.

Our staff will thoughtfully and faithfully engage in the life of each child. Please take a closer look at what First Lutheran has to offer God’s precious children in their educational and spiritual growth! The Parent Handbook is available at the Director’s Desk to review policies and procedures for the Early Learning Center.

If this sounds appealing, we invite you to please call Mindy Olson at 402-721-2959 or email mindyo@flcfremont.org.
