Immanual Lutheran Wee Care

15 Months to Age 12

We are a non-profit, community-oriented daycare center, caring for children in a loving, Christian atmosphere. Children at Immanuel Lutheran Daycare are lovingly taught and reinforced through demonstration of basic Christian values of respect, compassion and the knowledge of the love of Christ for the children and their families. Child care is available for children aged 15 months through 12 years. Before- and After-School care is also offered; bus transportation is provided to and from Okawville schools. Immanuel Lutheran Daycare aims to provide a comfortable, nurturing environment with age-appropriate curricula that is enjoyable for its children.

We are excited about our programs and our beautiful school facility. Please stop in for a tour. We would be pleased to have you visit!
