St. Paul Lutheran Childcare Center is a ministry of St. Paul Lutheran Church. We started operation in 1993. We provide care for children ages infant through 12.

Our school-age program services children from four public Schools (Bessie Ellison, Gene Field, Oak Grove & Coleman) & St. Paul Lutheran.

Our goal is to see that each child develops to his/her fullest capabilities. We were voted #1 Childcare Center in St. Joseph in 2015 & 2016.

For more information please visit the Childcare part of this website.


St. Paul Lutheran Childcare Center is closed on the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the following Friday, and Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. Should the center be closed on any other day, a two week notice will be given to parents. This notice will give parents time to make other arrangements.
