About Us

Low teacher/child ratios

ELM is accepting children who are 6 weeks through Age 5. Children can come as early as 6:00 a.m. and stay until 6:00 p.m.

The mission of ELM is to offer a quality early childhood education and loving care to the young child. Children participate in the regular classroom learning and play activities and also enjoy library, gym, music, sign language, Chapel and Spanish. The “specials” classes are woven into the preschool curriculum on scheduled days. The curriculum is structured, in each classroom, with developmentally appropriate learning experiences in a safe, nurturing, and Christian environment.  Parents are welcome to call to arrange a conference by calling 260-333-7999.


Just a Minute (The ELM theme):

If God stands a child before you, for even just a minute, it is a divine appointment.  You have the chance to launch a life, if you will.  You never know when you are making a memory.  The opportunity to build up…or, tragically, to tear down.  A single word, an uplifting comment, a well-timed hug, a tender prayer, a compliment, the holding of a frightened hand or the gentle wiping of a tear—all in just a minute!


Hours of Operation and Children Served:

Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
