History of Emanuel Lutheran Day Care
Emanuel Lutheran Day Care (ELDC) was established in January of 2000. Our day care program started with an "Infant Classroom" of eight infants from birth to 17 months old, two staff members, and a director. Our infant center was one of the few infant centers in the area. Within a short time ELDC increased enrollment by licensing the adjoining classroom and called it the "Toddler Classroom", adding up to 12 toddlers, age 12 months to 23 months, and employing an additional three staff members. By October of 2000, ELDC expanded by utilizing the existing facility next door, used for Sunday School, to include a "Preschool Program" that allowed ELDC to provide care for up to 3o children ages 2-5 years old and employ four more staff members to our already flourishing day care center. With the preschool addition, ELDC has been able to see tiny little newborns turn into extraordinarily bright kindergarteners.
