Welcome to St. Paul’s Lutheran Early Childhood Center, a Christian center that serves families in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. The center offers a stimulating and loving Christ-centered environment for young children. Teachers assist infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in developing their potential as children of God.
The Christ-centered, emergent curriculum provides “hands-on” activities that develop early learning skills and encourage children to become critical thinkers, researchers and life-long learners. Invaluable learning also takes place through social experiences that encourage problem solving, creative thinking, cooperation and Godly character development. The activities and educators make the center an inviting place for children to form a strong foundation for school readiness and Christian character.
Finding the best fit for your child and family can be daunting. Take time to browse through the site and contact us to set up a tour.
Notes from the Director
Dear SPLECC Families,
There have been some requests from parents on continued learning activities to do with their children at home while we live through the Covid-19 crisis.
We are fully aware of how incredibly stressful it can be to work and continue to serve your children’s needs. I encourage you to take one moment at a time and remember what matters most is your relationship with God and your family. That is easily forgotten when on a zoom conference while children are squabbling in the background or maybe you are required to be at work physically and home school your older children simultaneously. This is new territory for everyone including the children. Give yourself grace and take each day one moment at a time.
Please take a look at this list and use what you want. None of this is required, but should be used as resource should you want more educationally sound activities to do with your child(ren). As with any technology, please monitor your child as little ones can easily stray with ease to sites that are inappropriate.
May God bless you and your family today and every day. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. I will do my best to get back to you in a timely matter.
In His Service,
Director, St. Paul’s Lutheran ECC
