St. John Lutheran Church was organized on this site in Burns Township in November of 1876, by about 10 farming families of the area.
Some ten years later the congregation organized a Christian Day School which it supports to this day.
The staff in the early days of the Church and school were the Pastor and Principal/teacher.
The goal of our preschool program is to provide each child with many developmentally appropriate experiences in a loving Christian environment.
At St. John we emphasize the “whole child” which stresses: spiritual, cognitive, language, social, emotional, creative, large motor and fine motor skills and development.
Themes are used to introduce and develop concepts through both large and small group experiences, play, exploration and the use of centers.
St. John Lutheran Church and School is proud to announce that it has been selected for the 2008 Best of Elk River Award in the Preschool category by the U.S.
Local Business Association. The USLBA recognizes outstanding local businesses throughout the country.
Each year the USLBA identifies companies that they believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category.
