 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.
