Our Early Learning Program
Luthercare for Kids provides a safe, nurturing environment where children can be kids, students, athletes and artists… where they can explore, learn, thrive and grow. Give your child a great start by enrolling them in a Luthercare for Kids Early Learning Center with five locations in Lancaster and Lebanon counties.
A Year-round Learning Program that suits your schedule.
Programs are available for infants, toddlers and preschoolers at all of our Child Care and Learning Centers. All programs include basic care and meals in addition to a learning curriculum unique to each age group. Before and after school programs for elementary school students and summer programs for school agers are available at select locations.
Amanda Flory, Center Director of Luthercare for Kids – Columbia, holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.
As an only child born and raised in Lancaster County, Amanda grew up in an independent home-based child care center, surrounded by children from all walks of life, ages and challenges. This was where she found her passion for children, education and making a difference in lives. While in high school, Amanda started pursuing her second passion by coaching bowling in the after-school programs for elementary students. She began to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree while working at a four-star child care facility.
Amanda says, “I’ve had experience working myself up the career lattice in the early childhood field and continue to educate myself to be a better role model for others. Being a role model is important to me because leading and sharing with others my knowledge and experience helps support their quality program.”
In her free time, Amanda volunteers for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the Susquehanna Valley area. The organization helps grant wishes to children with life-threating medical conditions.
