We are a faith-based Preschool located near the Miller Branch Library in Ellicott City, Maryland. We serve families from all backgrounds, faith traditions, and neighborhoods. As a ministry of First Lutheran Church, our mission is to serve God by serving God's children. We do this in a playful, caring environment where children are challenged and supported in their growth and development.
We have openings in our classes for 3 year-olds!
Our hands-on curriculum is designed using the eight learning domains set forth in the Maryland State Department of Education's Division of Early Childhood Development: Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Health, Physical Education, Fine Arts, and Social Foundations.
We will be following the guidelines provided by the Department of Health and the State Department of Education in Maryland. You may view the guidelines here: k12_school_and_childcare_covid-19_guidance_8.13.21.pdf
