Pastor Stephanie Steele of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hagerstown and Church Council President Carol Gregg thought the church was too quiet during the week.

It was just what they were looking for when two preschool teachers approached Gregg and asked if she would consider the use of the church for a new preschool.

As a result, Spread Your Wings Learning Center will open Wednesday, Jan. 2. 

Steele said she strongly believes in the importance of education and outreach the preschool will provide in the Tri-State area. She will offer the students chapel time, introducing them to Christian values and teachings. 

The center directors, Terri Gwizdala and Jackie Kenworthy, are certified by the Maryland State Department of Education with several years of experience.  They believe in offering a safe, nurturing environment where learning is fun and every day brings new discoveries. 

Enrollment is now open and classes begin Jan. 2. The center will offer a two-day and three-day program of  instruction for 3-, 4- and 5-year olds. 

The curriculum will model Maryland State Standards for school readiness to help prepare children for kindergarten. 

Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church is at 216 N. Cleveland Ave. in Hagerstown.
