Hope Lutheran seeks to serve our community and share the good news of Jesus by operating one of the premier early learning centers in Manhattan. We take seriously the privilege and responsibility parents give us in letting us partner with them to love and nurture their child. Through age appropriate learning, we seek to educate and promote each child’s development – mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Hope Lutheran Early Learning Center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children: NAEYC, http://www.naeyc.org.
Within the loving relationship that each teacher creates, more trust is gained through the structure that Hope Lutheran provides. Each day your child knows what to do when they first arrive and subsequently what will happen after each activity. This provides your child with a sense of control. This control allows them to feel safe and confident exploring the world and building on what they already know. In the safety of an environment that they understand and feel at ease with, they learn self-control and learn how to focus on the task at hand; it may be putting a puzzle together, dealing with a conflict with a friend, or describing what they did at work time (play time—learning through play is hard work!).
Our curriculum, based on active learning, challenges the children to make choices, solve problems, and gain knowledge based on what they know. The teachers plan developmentally appropriate lessons to challenge each child to think and perform on a higher level in language, literacy, communication; social and emotional development; physical development, health and well-being; and arts and sciences. Teachers prepare each individual child for their next step.
Hope Lutheran Church and Early Learning Center is excited and blessed to provide families with quality, loving child care and doubly blessed to serve children and families with the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ for us. We would love to partner with you to love and guide your child! The directors would love to give you a tour. Email or call us today!
