"My 2 yr. old son attended Children's Discovery Academy in Vadnais Heights when we moved to Minnesota. I was very nervous about him attending a center - before he was at a home daycare with his grandmother - so this was his first experience in a child care institution.
As you can guess, I drove myself crazy with trying to find the perfect place for him. It seemed like I visited every daycare within the area, I saw many good ones and I saw many bad ones. I visited Children's Discovery on two occasions before I made the decision. The first visit, I met with the center's director, she was very informative, organized and thorough, which I loved. I toured the facility and met with one of the toddler teachers and was very impressed with all of their credentials and their tenure with the center. By the end of my search, I had Children's Discovery and another center as my final two and de cided to visit each of them again to help choose one. On the 2nd visit to Children's Discovery, I had the opportunity to watch the toddler class and see how the teachers interacted with their class. I was so impressed with the structured, yet caring environment they created for the toddlers that I didn't even bother going to see the other center again - I enrolled him that day.
I made the best decision because my son loved his teachers and this school and they loved him! They were so helpful with his potty training, kept him learning and exploring, very attentive to his needs and most importantly, always kept me informed. I was very, very sad to move out of the area and take him out of the daycare. This was hands-down the best child center experience I've had. If you're looking for a place where learning meets care, this is it!"
