About Grace Lutheran Early Learning Center Saint Cloud

Grace Lutheran Early Learning Center 


During the mid 1990's, the congregation of Grace Lutheran Church decided to investigate a ministry to families in our neighborhood and decided upon a preschool center.  Opened in 1998, Grace Lutheran School (as it was called at that time) originally served families with three-year-old and four-year-old preschool children. When Florida passed the Voluntary Prekindergarten Amendment, Grace Lutheran School became one of the first faith-based providers in Osceola County to enroll students. Grace Lutheran Early Learning Center is pleased to provide early childhood education as well as child care to families in Saint Cloud, Kissimmee, and the Lake Nona area of Orlando.



Grace Lutheran School Saint Cloud changed it's name to Grace Lutheran Preschool and changed it once more in 2018 to Grace Lutheran Early Learning Center when plans to expand to child care for infants as young as six weeks were implemented.


The staff of Grace Lutheran Early Learning Center Saint Cloud  provides a clean, safe environment for children in the areas of St. Cloud, Harmony, Kissimmee, Kindred, Buena Ventura Lakes, Celebration and Poiniciana in Osceola County and the areas of the medical city of Lake Nona, Hunters Creek, Williamsburg and southern Orlando in Orange County to develop socially, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. In addition to our preschool and VPK classes, we offer wraparound child care for those who need it.   ​   ​
