Mission
Mission
We are a Christian Child Center that exists to assist parents to guide children, by word and example, to the loving arms of the Savior, as he is revealed in the Bible.


Philosophy
St. Paul’s Lutheran Child Center is a group childcare center-serving all children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. We offer morning and afternoon pre-school programs, all day childcare and an after school program. St. Paul’s Child Center serves by nurturing the faith of children in their dear Savior, and demonstrating practical ways to live their faith in Christ. 
    
Along with Christian values, Bible lessons and prayers, to help a child grow spiritually, St. Paul’s Child Center provides activities to help each child grow and develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Children will have the opportunity to partake in self-initiated or teacher directed activities. Group activities along with individual activities will also be provided. 
    
At St. Paul’s Child Center, we believe children learn through play and not all children learn the same way. Children need to have age appropriate activities presented and taught in a variety of different ways to help each child strive to succeed to the best of their ability.  


SPLCC Program License
St. Paul’s Lutheran Congregation has acquired a group childcare license from the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services, Division of Children and Family Services to operate our child center.  Our license specifies our maximum capacity as 81 children operating January through December, Monday-Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for children ages 6 weeks-12 years of age. 
 
The license, licensing rules and any cited rule violations are to be posted on the bulletin board just inside the main entrance. Our program is obligated to comply with all pertinent DCF 251 Licensing rules for Group Day Care Centers.  Copies of this are also available for review on that same bulletin board. State licensing specialists conduct unannounced visits and have the right to review students’ forms and records and the center’s medical log.
