King of Kings offers a quality Christ-centered early childhood education
in which each child is encouraged to grow, learn and develop as a child of God.

Founded by King of Kings Lutheran Church, the Early Learning Center has been a staple in the Northland for the last 25 years, meeting the needs of members and the community, and bringing children to know Jesus. In recent years we have expanded the ELC to offer a variety of classes – from a traditional half-day program to full-day learning and extended care. While keeping our spritiual values, we continue to raise our academic bar to help children meet and exceed early learning milestones.
