About Us

In 2011 LADC entered into its first partnership with a Catholic Church and School at St. Jude of the Lake in Mahtomedi. This school partnership provides a unique opportunity to “buddy” with students in the elementary school and benefit from their wonderful facilities. One other unique aspect of this site is the partnership with Coventry Senior Living Center, through which the children have a chance to develop ongoing relationships with Senior Citizens.

Site Director Emily Sullivan joined LADC right out of college and has been a Site Director since 2008. When she is not teaching or managing her site, she is co-directing Curriculum Development and Teacher Training for all LADC Locations.
