“One of the hard parts about being a working parent can be missing out on some of the things your child learns and experiences during the day. While sometimes hard for parents, this is the best part of our job here at Children’s Discovery. We have the opportunity to be a part of each child’s life in a big way. We get to celebrate all those successes big and small and provide an environment for both children and families that we are proud of.  We nurture, educate, and provide lasting memories.  And we do it all because we love it. As a mother myself, I can’t think of anything more important than what we do here.  We get to make a difference and have a positive impact on the lives of children.”

Infant Teacher, Vadnais Heights

Educational Background:
Graduated 916 Vo-Tech/Lakewood Community College in Child Development Course

Employed with Children’s Discovery Academy since 2001

“All I’ve ever wanted to be is a mom and raise kids. In my job, I have been able to help raise so many babies throughout the years. It’s not very often that people can say they love their career. I can honestly say that I absolutely do LOVE my career! It gives me such great joy to watch each and every baby grow and learn everyday. I love to encourage them, teach them and help them accomplish tasks such as sitting, crawling, walking and saying their first words!

I am calm, loving, and I have a positive attitude. I think these attributes reflect onto the babies as well as other staff in our classroom.”

DarciF@ChildrensDiscoveryAcademy.com

Pre-Kindergarten Teacher, Vadnais Heights

Educational Background:
B.A. in Elementary Education with Pre-Primary from Bethel University

Employed with Children’s Discovery Academy since 2003

“I have been lucky enough to enjoy my career here at Children’s Discovery Academy since 2003. I can honestly say that I LOVE my job!

As a teacher that has been here all these years, I think my favorite part are the families that have come through my class. I enjoy the personal relationships that have been formed and it’s especially rewarding to hear from them for years after they’ve already gone.

As a parent of a child that has gone through the program, I was always impressed with the amount of knowledge my son came home with daily. I sometimes thought,“What else could my child possibly learn when his own mother is a teacher?” But with the fabulous curriculum, there was always something new to learn. He was always safe, well taken care of, and he always enjoyed school.”
