Trips have included the Yellowstone Art Museum, The Montana Audubon Conservation Education Center, the Billings Public Library and The Wise Wonders Children Museum. We will continue to visit new places and expand our horizons inside and outside the classroom.

Special Events

like to celebrate everything! From birthdays, Father and Mother luncheons, Halloween, Christmas, President’s Day, Groundhog Day, Moving-up day ... These are great opportunities for exploration and play, along with honoring traditions, our students and their families. We also invite guests to the Child Enrichment Center. Last year a firefighter joined us to teach the children about fire safety. We also had an educator from Rimrock Pediatric Dental who taught the children about good dental health habits.

Fundraising helps us to provide scholarships, maintain our building, pay operational cost and generally make “ends meet.” Three times a year we host a fundraising event. The Children’s Art Auction, our Trivia & Tapas event and the Wine and Dine are very popular. St. Luke’s Child Enrichment Center is a non-profit 501(c)3, and we work hard to keep our tuition costs low.


Contact us if you would like to make a tax-deductible donation.
