New early learning center coming to La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT)- This year has been tough for families looking for a daycare for their kids as many daycares have been booked and families are put on waitlists.

Now there is a new opportunity for families in need, Luther Schools are opening an early learning center in February.

Today, families could check out the facility during their open house.

First Light Early Learning Center is located at the former St. Paul’s Church in La Crosse.

The center will serve children as young as three months all the way up to preschoolers.

“I’ve had a lot of parents reach out to me and just have been on waiting lists so there is a need for it in the community, from infants through preschool,” said First Light Early Learning Center Director, Jennifer Hackbarth.

The First Light Early Learning Center Director says that they will start enrolling kids this week.
