Our Purpose – Messiah Lutheran Preschool and Childcare offers a program which will provide children with a wide variety of learning experiences.  In a Christian environment, each child will be free to explore his or her surroundings.  Also, he or she will receive encouragement to participate in events that will ensure success.

Our Mission – Our mission at Messiah Lutheran Preschool and Childcare is to provide activities which will fulfill each child’s basic individual needs (spiritual, emotional, physical, psychological, and intellectual).  Our desire is to provide opportunities to develop the talents God has given to each of His children.

We are pleased and excited to announce that Messiah Lutheran Preschool and Childcare is now a part of an exciting statewide system called Paths to QUALITY™. Paths to QUALITY has been developed to help ensure that the children of Indiana receive better quality child care and brighter futures. In addition to promoting higher quality child care, this program has the following goals:

  • To provide families with a way to make informed decisions when choosing child care
  • To support professional development of child care providers
  • To recognize and reward child care providers who show a commitment to quality improvement of their early learning programs on an ongoing basis

Our decision to participate in this worthwhile program is great news for your child because research shows that high quality early learning experiences prepare children for success in school, work, and life! By participating in Paths to QUALITY, we are making a commitment to providing your child with quality care. You can be confident that as a Paths to QUALITY Level 1 program, we will be meeting the State’s standards for health and safety.
