Laurel Hall Early Childhood Center is a Christ-centered preschool owned and operated by Emmanuel Lutheran Church as a community service and as a Christian outreach. We welcome families who are members of Emmanuel Lutheran Church, members of other congregations, or children whose families who have no church affiliation.

We offer an early drop off from 7am and extended care until close at 6pm. We welcome and respect families of all cultural and religious backgrounds. In our safe and loving environment children play, learn and socialize through both free play and teacher guided activities.

Our weekly schedule includes gardening, cooking, science activities, dance instruction and performances, Spanish, and a weekly chapel program. This solid foundation of age appropriate academics and creative play will reinforce your child’s growth towards being an emotionally stable, well-rounded lifelong learner.
