Salem Lutheran Children Center provides a warm and inviting environment for all children ages three to twelve. We pride ourselves in allowing children to grow and develop at a natural pace in an inviting and caring atmosphere. We would love to show you our school. Please call 410.557.6612 to schedule a tour today.

All daycare programs are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.  We do not discriminate against any child for reasons of race, religion, color or national origin.  As an outreach of Salem Lutheran Church, however, it should be understood that certain parts of the days’ schedule will have a Christian character; prayers before snacks, and a Bible story told by the pastor.

Day Care is open year round with two separate contracts (one for the school term and one for the summer program). Our center opens at 6:30 a.m. and closes at 6:00 p.m.  Certain major holidays will be observed when the center is closed. A non-refundable registration fee of $60 will be charged for all programs ($30 for a second child), and is due with the registration form.

Extended Day Preschool/Daycare

To be accepted into the extended day preschool program, a child must be at least three years old and potty trained.  The three-year-old extended day preschool curriculum is taught Monday through Friday, 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. The four-year-old extended day preschool program is integrated into the daily schedule from 9:00-12:00.
