Move Button Move Button


At Heavenly Host Lutheran Early Childhood Center children engage in hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities in a Christ-centered environment. The goal of the Early Childhood Center is to help each child reach their highest potential in five ways: Spiritual, Intellectual, Social, Emotional, and Physical. We encourage learning and playing while exploring God’s world!

Our Story

Heavenly Host Lutheran School (HHLS) was created as a ministry arm of Heavenly Host Lutheran Church in August of 1993. Beginning with a single preschool class, HHLS continued to grow and flourish as an early childhood center, adding classrooms and staff as the school grew. The school soon expanded to include children in grades K-8 in addition to the preschool classes. For the 2021 – 2022 school year, HHLS served students in the Early Childhood Center as well as students in K-12th grade. Currently Heavenly Host is not offering K-12 education. Our focus now is the Early Childhood Center program for infants though PK4/5.
