Our Mission

The mission of St. Luke’s Lutheran ELC is to train the next generation of Christians and equip them for a life of service to their Savior, homes, churches, vocations, and communities. St. Luke’s Lutheran Church of Manhattan, Kansas, Early Learning Center will provide a variety of academic and religious learning experiences in a Christ-centered environment.

Our mission at the ELC has a tri-fold purpose. The first purpose is to provide a ministry to the families in the community. The ELC seeks to provide a spiritual environment with Christian leadership to help children grow and develop into mature Christian individuals by encouraging families to participate in activities with the St. Luke’s Church and ELC.

Secondly, the ELC seeks to provide an environment where parents can feel comfortable and secure leaving their children, knowing they will receive excellent care in their home away from home.

Thirdly, the ELC seeks to provide opportunities for children to grow and develop through exploration and experimentation with various learning materials and activities; activities that are stimulating, age appropriate, and enhance spiritual, social-emotional, physical, and intellectual development.

Biblical principles are integrated into every subject taught at our ELC. Our staff is committed not only to academic excellence, but also to teaching students how to apply the truth’s of God’s Word to every aspect of life.  We look forward to partnering with you!
