Grow in Peace was created by the members of Peace Lutheran Church as a ministry outreach in order to provide quality child care to area families that is based on Christian principles.  Peace Lutheran Church's mission is to spread the grace of God through Jesus Christ by sharing our faith, growing our faith, and living our faith. National Lutheran School Accredited since August 2013.

 Grow in Peace is a Missouri state licensed child care center, which means the rules and regulations we operate under are dictated and directed by the Missouri Department of Health, as contained in the Licensing Rules for Group day Care Home and Child Care Centers in Missouri,  a copy of which is available in the office for your review.  The Licensing Rules mandate that the staff of Grow in Peace report any suspected child abuse to appropriate authorities.

 At Grow in Peace Child Care Center, we are focused on helping children grow in wisdom and in grace, following the path God chooses for each just like Jesus, Luke 2:40 "And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him." We are committed to sharing God's Love, serving children in a safe and Christian atmosphere. Each child will be treated as an individual with specific traits for learning through developmentally appropriate activities that will grow the child spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically. Grow in Peace Child Care Center shall provide a safe Christian environment with loving, experienced, and professional staff that recognize parents have the primary responsibility in skill development and Christian training for their children. As an outreach ministry of Peace Lutheran Church, we strive to set an example of Christ's Love through God's Word and assist in the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical development of the children entrusted to our care. Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV) "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Helping children grow in wisdom and in grace..
