ALECC Enrollment 2015 2016 Application

WELCOME! Thank you for your interest in Ascension Lutheran Early Childhood and Infant Care Center. Ascension Lutheran Early Childhood and Infant Care Center is a state-licensed, nonprofit, private school and a ministry of Ascension Lutheran Church. It is operated on a non-discriminatory basis, admitting all children regardless of race, religion or ethnic origin.

Our accredited nature explorer classroom offers a loving, safe, structured environment for ages two through five that encourages a deep connection with nature and a sense of stewardship for God’s world.

Our youngest learners, ages three months through age two, are nurtured through the practice of primary care giving and nature-based learning opportunities in the outdoor classroom.

Knowing that virtually every aspect of the development of the human brain is shaped by experience, we embrace active learning and honor our students’ sense of wonder through an emergent science-based curriculum that ensures personal growth.
