Parent Handbook

A word from our Senior Pastor…

Thank you for giving us the privilege and awesome responsibility for the spiritual, emotional and intellectual growth of your child through the ministry of St. John Early Childhood Center! We realize that your child is precious and that you want the very best for him or her. And we do not take this trust lightly. We have long been committed to excellence in our early education programs. This is seen in not only the beautiful and state of the art building that the people of St. John built, but also in the commitment to excellence of staff and staff training and support.

That long-standing commitment is a dim reflection, however, of the commitment that our God has for children. When mothers were bringing their children to Jesus for his blessing some wanted to scurry them away. But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Luke 18:16). God has a huge heart for children! Jesus showed that when he blessed the children and when he died for the sins of the World, so we are very serious about fulfilling God’s mission to bless the children and all people by living and sharing the abundant life of Jesus Christ.

It is our great delight to lead people to a deeper experience of life—abundant and eternal—through faith in Jesus Christ. You are certainly welcome to join us for worship each Sunday at 8:15 and 11:00. We also have various Bible Studies each Sunday to help you grow in your faith—as your children also grow in the faith through our Sunday School program. If you need spiritual support, advice, encouragements, or direction, please call on us. It is our great joy to share the abundant life of Jesus with all people. Please give us the privilege of sharing it with you. In Jesus…

Abundant Blessings!
Dr. David Bahn, Senior Pastor
John 10:10

A word from the Director…

I am very pleased to welcome you to St. John Lutheran Early Childhood Center. Thank you for entrusting your children to our care. We feel honored and blessed to be chosen. Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that young children need the opportunity to explore, play, create, learn, grow and develop in a Christ centered, nurturing environment. We strive to instill a love of learning that will last a lifetime.

Parents and visitors are welcome to visit our campus. We ask that you check in at the office first. Communication between the parent, school and teacher is important for your child’s success. We welcome your questions and feedback. We started the Summer Program in June of 2002. In Summer Program the children are loved and nurtured in a relaxed atmosphere.

The St. John handbook is prepared for each school family to provide you with our policies and procedures. Please take time to read through it as it is updated yearly. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know. Again, thank you for choosing St. John.

God’s Blessings,
Yevonne Wieringa,
Director
