Kids of Christ Learning Center
Kids of Christ Learning Center had its beginning in the fall of 2001. It was the goal of Christ Lutheran Church to expand our Christian ministry. The purpose was to provide families a place where their children could receive quality Christian care, instruction, and after-school supervision. This was done by adding a learning center which provides learning opportunities and child care for pre-school children and after school care for school age children. Two WELS certified teachers were called to provide the majority of teaching and childcare. Mrs. Deborah Horn and Mrs. Stacy Lindhart joyfully began the ministry.
A classroom was set up in the auditorium classroom. Goodhue County licensed the childcare for 14 children. We were at maximum capacity after a month. In December 2001 we became licensed under the state of Minnesota, and added Mrs. Heather Tiarks to our staff. Through the generous gifts of our members and also through grants, the Center is a fully furnished, happy place for little ones.
Now, in 2011, we celebrate the eleventh year of blessings at Kids of Christ Learning Center. We are able to share the love of Jesus with children in our congregation and community. Mrs. Stacy Lindhart, Miss Carmen Thumann and additional part-time assistants continue this wonderful ministry.
