St. Bart’s Catholic Church’s Discovery Center

Wayzata Preschool

"LADC catered not only to the children, but in helping us as parents feel organized and well-prepared for school each day. For a working Mom, this was such a huge blessing, as there were frequently times when I had missed an email or memo. "

--The Ziemer Family


St. Bart’s Catholic Church in Wayzata is fulfilling a need for expanded programming in the community. This school partnership provides a unique opportunity to “buddy” with students in the elementary school and benefit from their wonderful facilities.

Executive Director Janet Miller will be guiding and mentoring the teaching team. Janet’s leadership will ensure that the St. Bart’s location continues to meet LADC’s high level of quality.
