WHO ARE WE?
Our Father’s Lutheran Childcare was established in 1994 to support parents in our congregation and neighborhood who were seeking quality and compassionate care for their children. We have been licensed by the state of Wisconsin since 1995. Over the years we expanded and currently serve infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Our enrollment includes families of many different denominations and religions.
The childcare is home to about 70 to 80 families with children ranging in age from 6 weeks to 14 years. We strive to be a place that encourages, guides and teaches parents and their children to be the very best they can be. We teach morals, values and right attitudes along with the A, B, and C’s. Every day we have a “Jesus time” where we learn about the God we serve at all age groups. We are proud to encourage love, fellowship and Christian behavior to the children in our childcare family so that “when they are old, they will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 25:6)
The Infant/Toddler building (IT) is home to many infants and toddlers each day. We nurture and guide, love and teach them on an individual basis. We spend our time learning basic living techniques, such as eating, crawling, talking and walking. We also open up their world to sign language, colors, letters, numbers and most importantly our Savior Jesus Christ.
Between the three Preschool classrooms there are approximately 20-25 children daily. Here we work on our school readiness, social skills, and most important, we play! Many of our preschoolers continue on to our 4K program at the school.
Along with our summer program, we also provide before and after school care and care for no school days. We are fortunate to have a bus from Elmdale make a stop both before and after school. Arrangements must be made with the bus company for your child to ride this bus. We are constantly striving to meet and exceed our parents’ expectations as well as being a convenience to their everyday lives.
Our before and after school program, along with our summer school-age program meets a real need to our working families here and throughout the neighborhood. We serve breakfast in both centers from 6-8 a.m., snacks mid-morning and after nap/rest time, and lunch. Those children arriving after school also receive a snack. We also provide opportunities for them to work on their homework, do fun activities, or just spend time with their friends. During the summer months, we have weekly scheduled activities along with fun field trips to help everyone enjoy.
We have selective openings throughout the childcare. Please call us for our current rates and availability.
We are always looking for loving arms to come in and help us in our mission to raise Our Father’s children. If you or someone you know is 18 or older and qualified to work in a licensed childcare, and looking for employment, please give us a call. We offer flexible hours and a fun, fulfilling environment.
