About the Provider

Description: Founder Janet Miller, began LADC in 1999 to fill a need in the community for more, strong, Christian-based early childhood programs. Striving to offer the highest-quality pre-primary education, the decision was made to hire only 4 year degree, early-childhood education/ kindergarten certified lead teachers with a current MN teaching license. Janet created a unique blend of the “Bank Street”, “High Scope”, “ECFE” and “Montessori” models of learning together with a Christian emphasis for the daily operating philosophy. LADC lead teachers from all locations team together to write monthly lesson plans from the LADC Curriculum.

Janet, with the LADC Board of Directors, has built partnerships with area churches and schools. LADC provides the education, licensing and accreditation expertise for high-quality care and Kindergarten-readiness programs. Our partners provide beautiful buildings and spaces plus partner in family fellowship events. These partnerships enable LADC to hire dedicated, licensed early-childhood teachers and provide them with competitive salaries and benefits.

Since 1999, LADC has grown to 9 metro partnerships with a team of over 50 teachers and staff. 6 locations are currently NAEYC Accredited. Originally a traditional preschool program, LADC has grown to include programs for infants and toddlers. All locations offer wrap-around care and full-time schedules, with many sites providing year-round (summer) programing.
