Early Learning Center at St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Baldwin to close after 29 years

St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Baldwin recently announced that its Early Learning Center will close after 29 years.
The church broke the news in a letter to the community and cited financial issues as a reason for the closure.
It stated in part, “the up and down economy and the advent of universal pre-K has impacted our enrollment numbers over the last few years."
The Early Learning Center staff will continue to provide a caring learning environment until the end of the year, according to officials.
