Trinity Lutheran Church’s Lake Area Discovery Center

Stillwater Preschool

About Us

Trinity Lutheran’s Lake Area Discovery Center (LADC) opened in 2006 due to the high demand in the Stillwater area following the opening of the Our Savior’s site. Trinity houses our largest Pre-K classroom and a beautiful indoor gym. It is also home to the community playground that was built in partnership with Trinity Lutheran Church, Stillwater Headstart and LADC.

Site Director Sarah Adams joined LADC several years ago as Lead Teacher in White Bear Lake. After returning to MN from a move to the West Coast, she returned to LADC's Our Savior's location in Stillwater. Sarah has a degree in early-childhood/preprimary studies from Northwestern College. She is excited to for her new role as Trinity's Site Director!
