St. Mark Early Learning Center (ELC)

Established by St. Mark in 1996, the Early Learning Center is a key mission and ministry of the church. St. Mark is committed to providing an excellent program for young children and their families which is
  • affordable,
  • developmentally appropriate,
  • with active learning opportunities, and
  • respectful of diverse cultures and races, while being
  • built upon the foundation of a loving, Christian environment.
St. Mark supports the ELC by providing funds annually for need-based scholarships. We support chapel every Thursday in the sanctuary and participate in fundraising events and ELC activities. St. Mark members fill a majority of seats on the ELC board of directors, along with community members and parents/grandparents of children enrolled.
This preschool program nurtures the spiritual, social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth of children in a climate of love and support through a Christian-based program of excellence. The ELC is licensed by Texas Health & Human Services; is a Texas Rising Star 4-Star program, and is the only preschool in Boerne that is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
