Mission & History


“Building a Christ centered community nurtured in God’s Word and sacrament to share Christ’s saving grace.”

As a ministry of The Lutheran Church and School of Saint Luke, centered in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and focused on the total growth and development of children, the Christian Day Care Center provides a variety of experiences for children from age three through eighth grade and supports their parents in today’s changing world.

As a service to the community, we extend our care to children outside the Saint Luke family. Our care is intended to provide a unified, appropriate, educational experience for each child in a warm and friendly atmosphere. For that reason, our staff is committed to lovingly help and guide each child through each day.

An important element of our Christian Day Care is the religious teachings and values that the children are exposed to through our staff and our activities. Religious education takes place in the form of daily devotions, meal prayers, religious songs, Bible stories, service related activities, projects and the like.


The Saint Luke Christian Day Care program began shortly after our first Junior Kindergarten class started in 1970 making Saint Luke a pioneer in early childhood education. The Christian Day Care program has developed over the years and today serves hundreds of children in our community with the same care and dedication the founders of our ministry established in the beginning of our program.
