Beginning Years Child Care Center is an outreach ministry of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church serving families in Southeast Boise for over 25 years. We are a nonprofit facility which strives to provide a loving, Christian environment for children. We endeavor to meet the basic needs of each child’s growth by ministering to each one’s emotional, physical, mental and spiritual nature. The director and staff are committed to warm and loving care, motivated by their love and devotion to Jesus Christ.
Beautiful Savior views its childcare program as an integral and important element of its ministry. Beautiful Savior supports this ministry by providing facilities for the child care program and providing the ministry of its pastor to the children and parents enrolled in its program.
We are a Boise City licensed facility, and maintain the city required child-to-teacher ratio for all children. Beginning Years is an equal opportunity facility in both employment and service. We do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin.
