closedThis past year has proved challenging as St. John Lutheran Church sought to reopen the Early Learning Center. The original decision to close for 2020-2021 was a difficult one as we love serving families through our preschool. The leadership worked diligently throughout the fall and winter to prepare to hire staff, open enrollment, and renew our DCFS license to open in the fall of 2021.


What we did not expect was the difficulties the pandemic would pose in hiring staff for the Early Learning Center. Because we did not yet have a director in May 2021, and cannot open without one, the congregation decided it was best to not reopen for the 2021-2022 school year so that parents already enrolled had adequate time to fine alternate placement for their children.

While we do not know what God's plan is for our school, our congregation still has a heart and a desire to teach and care for little ones. We will continue to explore ways to serve families in our community and hope we can connect with you in the future. We are most grateful for your support since 1969.
