Our goal at Messiah is to provide a nurturing environment where the individual physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual growth of each child is encouraged and celebrated.

This is accomplished by developing safe, enriching Christian learning environments that promote:

  • a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by modeling, teaching and practicing age-appropriate components of spiritual development

  • loving, nurturing interactions between Christian educators, children and their families

  • inclusive, anti-bias curriculum and policies that reflect the diversity of children and families in our community and the world around us

  • a commitment to exceeding the standards, goals and practices of Early Childhood Center Certification of the Evangelical Lutheran Education Association (ELEA) and the DCFS Licensing Regulations of the State of Illinois

  • continuing staff growth and development in faith, understanding of how children learn and grow and develop and ways to support parents to the fullest
