The Lord's Children (TLC)
Preschool, Kindergarten, and First Grade

An Early Childhood Ministry of King of Glory Lutheran Church

TLC is a ministry of King of Glory Lutheran Church. We have been in operation since 1982 and welcome children of all cultures, races, and faiths. The kindergarten is open to all five year old children while the preschool offers programs for two through first grade.


The purpose of TLC is to provide a learning environment that is conducive to Christian growth and development. We encourage a lively awareness of God's love for each child. The school provides developmentally appropriate opportunities to learn by active participation in all areas of growth; socially, cognitively, emotionally and spiritually.


The TLC staff is made up of Christian teachers who are experienced, educated and qualified to guide your child with understanding, patience and love.

Teachers attend professional conferences, participate in regularly scheduled staff meetings and keep alert to new academic trends and needs.

The TLC program's curriculum is designed to be developmentally appropriate for each age group, two through first grade, in order to meet each age's specific needs.

Through a carefully planned curriculum, TLC creates an environment which encourages...

...The development of a positive self-concept and a feeling of confidence.

...Stimulation of each child's inquiring mind to ensure intellectual development.

...Growth in the ability to understand feelings and to express them in constructive ways.

...The development of increased physical coordination of both large and small muscles.

...Growth in social skills and the development of happy and responsible relationships with others.

...Preparation to cope with a changing world by learning to make choices and to solve problems.


That children learn best in...

An atmosphere of love, where each is encouraged to explore and discover while being treated with courteous and compassionate tenderness.

An atmosphere of patience, allowing unhurried responses to the natural inquisitiveness of each child.

An atmosphere of understanding, where children may develop a true sense of values.

An atmosphere of warm and active cooperation between parents and teachers, which affirms the child as the most important concern of home and school.
