Welcome to St. Stephen Small Saints Learning Center (SSLC)!

We are dedicated to providing families with quality educational services in a Christian environment.  The Preschool and Parent's Day Out staff, along with St. Stephen Lutheran Church, are eager to work with you during this important time in your child's development. 


Our staff integrates a developmentally appropriate learning program with an atmosphere conducive to exploring God's world.  We provide flexibility to meet each child's individual needs.  Here children will learn to love, accept, help and forgive others because Christ first loved and forgave us.  Children are encouraged to develop their God-given talents in a secure atmosphere of love and acceptance.


Within this framework of philosophy and purpose, the program includes:              



Parent's Day Out

Parent's Day Out program hours are from 9:15-3:00 (full day) or 9:15-12:00 (half day).  Based on availability you may choose your own schedule.  For example, you may choose one to five full days or a combination of full and half days.
