General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

From the Director:

We serve children from ages 6 weeks to 6 years. Our infant and toddler classrooms are child directed classrooms, where the children learn through play. We incorporate art and group activities perioically. Our preschool classroom is teacher - led intructed. We teach the children through the world around them by implementing a theme, alphabet, language, science, math, and religion into our curriculumn program.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Emanuel Lutheran Day Care is a center that is owned and operated by Emanuel Lutheran Church. We focus on acceptance of others and celebration of individual and cultural differences. This center was developed in order to serve Modesto families with a much needed day care center. Proudly, we are currently licensed to care for 8 infants (0-12mo), 12 toddlers (12-23mo), and 30 preschoolers (2-5yrs). "By building Christ-centered, positive, trusting relationships, we nurture the spiritual growth of children and strengthen families," (Page 3, ECE Program, ELCA Schools).
We at Emanuel Lutheran Day Care are here to act on the behalf of the children and families of the community of Modesto by providing loving, positive, developmentally appropriate care for their children. We provide a safe, secure learning environment teaching Christian Faith, acceptance and respect for all God's children, and a love for learning.
