Mission Statement

First Lutheran MDO will reach out to our community with the Good News of Jesus, providing a Christ-centered environment, activities and experiences that nurture the spiritual, social, physical, emotional, and developmental growth of all children and families. 

Statement of Faith

Grace alone

God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

Faith alone

By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people for all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

Scripture alone

The Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.  




















To cultivate a love and knowledge of God, equipping students to live lives that engage their world with the gospel of Christ. 


Our Philosophy

First Lutheran Mother's Day Out is committed to the total development of each child placed under our care. Our program endeavors include meeting the unique academic, social, and spiritual needs of our youngest students. Children enrolled in First Lutheran MDO learn in a safe and nurturing environment where Godly character is promoted and the wholeness of every child is addressed. As children absorb ideals early, we feel strongly that a values-driven environment is essential during the early education process and beyond.

We believe young children need and desire social interaction with peers and that they are ready to learn both academically and spiritually. We promote the love of learning and the love of Truth, laying a strong foundation in the heart and mind of a child.

It is also our desire to work closely with First Lutheran MDO families in making the classroom experience a positive one for both children and parents!
