We are looking forward to a new and exciting year. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Our History
Child Development & Learning Center (CDLC) located at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, is a Christian preschool for children ages 3 to 5. CDLC was founded in 1971 and began with 30 students. Currently CDLC serves 150 children each week.

Our Mission
Child Development & Learning Center welcomes all families and celebrates each child as a gift from God. We develop strong self-esteem in our children by guiding them to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively.

Nondiscrimination Notice
CDLC admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the preschool. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.

Our Staff
Our staff consists of teachers, aides and administrators. All of our staff members are certified in CPR and first aid.

Advisory Committee
The Advisory Committee is a resource for CDLC to help to facilitate the decision making processes of our school. The Advisory Committee is composed of 9 members plus a Staff Representative and the Director. A liaison of Prince of Peace Board of Directors and representatives of the Prince of Peace administration will also attend Advisory Committee Meetings. Parent concerns may be addressed to administration or the Advisory Committee.

CDLC is licensed to serve 100 children per session by the Department of Human Services in the State of Minnesota. Ten children are enrolled per class. CDLC meets and exceeds the State’s guidelines for preschools.

Parents may review CDLC’s Program Plan and Behavior Guidance Plans as submitted to the State upon request in the office. Questions to Human Services may be directed to 612-296-3971.

For Whom
Children who are toilet trained and 3 years old by December 1 of the current year through 5 years of age are welcome and valued at CDLC.

Applications are accepted until the sessions are filled. Each applicant will register online prior to admission to the Center, and submit a non-refundable registration fee for enrollment processing which is not part of the regular tuition payment. Open positions are filled as our office receives the completed forms. Once all positions are filled, names are placed on a waiting list. These families are contacted as openings occur. Only children who are eligible for enrollment that current school year will have their names placed on the waiting list.

Each child is enrolled for the entire school year. If you intend to withdraw your child from CDLC at any time, you must complete a Withdrawal Form. You will continue to be liable for monthly tuition until 30 days after the Withdrawal Form is received in the CDLC office. If your child is enrolled as of April 1, you are responsible for tuition for the remainder of the year. Prior to enrollment, the parent and child may meet with the Director to visit the program, discuss policies, enrollment procedures, and answer any questions the parent may have.
