Welcome to Justus Falckner Early Learning Center

Justus Falckner Early Learning Center is a program of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Sassmanville. We are pleased to help carry on the legacy of the former Falkner Swamp Nursery School and the outstanding programs they have provided the children of this area over the years. Our name builds off that legacy. Justus Falckner (or Falkner) was the first Lutheran Pastor ordained in North America at the Gloria Dei Church in Philadelphia. Before he was ordained, he came to this area to work with his brother in the real estate business selling land in this part of Montgomery County.
