Christ the King Child Development Center (CtK CDC) is a faith-based learning center offering programs for members of our community and church with children age 6 weeks to 4 years old. Children participating in our programs experience the warmth of Christ's love on a daily basis as our staff, which has a combined average of 25 years experience, seeks to meet their basic needs and aid them in their spiritual, physical, emotional, social and cognitive development.

CtK CDC is a religious, nonprofit school that is an integral part of the ministries at Christ the King Lutheran Church. As such, CtK CDC is exempt from licensing and regulation by the Department of Human Resources. All teachers are CPR and First Aid qualified with renewals every 2 years.
