“It’s always so hard to entrust your young kids to others so you can go to work. My husband and I had a couple of depressing experiences with other childcare centers, and I was beginning to worry that maybe my expectations were just too high. Then, a good friend referred us to Children’s Discovery and my whole life became so much easier. I was extremely relieved and grateful to have finally found peace of mind! My toddler loves her school and her teachers. They communicate every detail of the day, plus pictures of my kids having fun, through an app…

“Deciding to enroll our first baby at a daycare center was a really difficult decision for us but we could not be any happier that we did so at Children’s Discovery. As we came to know the staff, it quickly became obvious that they care about the children immensely. I’ll never forget having to pick my daughter up when she was sick one day and they were just holding her and rocking her, rubbing her back just as we would have done at home! The structure “school” provides has also really helped our daughter through the tough transitions (two naps…

“My husband and I visited another daycare before choosing to put a deposit on a spot in the infant room, almost 7 months before our baby would attend. As first-time parents, we didn’t know what to expect from daycare, but we are so happy with our choice! The staff in the infant room are wonderful and always greet us and our daughter with a smile. We love the ease of the mobile app which lets us know how she is doing throughout the day. The pictures they send show us just how much fun she is having!” Elissa from Little…

“I’m very impressed with everything Children’s Discovery has to offer. From cleanliness to nutrition and the excellent educational curriculum. Both my daughters are very happy!” Zachary from Mahtomedi Father of Ava and Anna, Toddler and Infant

“We have been attending Children’s Discovery Academy for over two years now. I feel very confident and safe with my children here. Especially during a pandemic, I am very thankful for all the precautions and extra steps that the teachers and staff take to make sure everyone is safe. Teachers and staff wear masks and temperatures are taken when kids are dropped off at school. During these challenging times, my kids are still getting the best care and education they can. The teachers are upbeat, positive, and genuinely love what they do. I love watching my kids grow and flourish…

CDA

“CDA’s teachers are all great! Overall our kids really like their classes and have a lot of fun. Teachers are all really involved and helpful. One thing to note is that all preschoolers (about age 3+) need to be potty trained so if you’ve got a kid that isn’t trained or has a lot of accidents that can be tough since no pull-ups are allowed. Overall it’s a great center though, teachers do their best to make sure the kids are learning and have what they need to be happy and healthy!” Kelly from Roseville Mother of Daxton and Maeve,…

“When I was pregnant with my first I toured and instantly loved CDA. Unfortunately, there were no infant openings at the time. We settled on another center but I still hoped I could get him in. Fast forward a few years and we made the switch. It was clear we made the right decision quickly. He was so happy, chatty, and excited after daycare. We welcomed our second son in July and he attends CDA as well. I love seeing him smile when he sees his teachers because I know he’s happy and well take care of. CDA has the…

“We were referred to Children’s Discovery by another CDA family and could not be happier! We came from a different preschool and are continuously impressed by CDA. The teachers in both the preschool and pre-kindergarten rooms have truly embraced our kids for who they are. The education they are receiving is exceptional and the enrichment activities available are great! Soccer shots, Tumble Fun Bus, and Play, Tap and Go music class are just some that our kids have loved! We would definitely recommend CDA to any family!” Mallory from Minneapolis Mother of Alex and Theo, Pre-Kindergarten and Preschool

“CDA was a welcomed relief for our family when we moved to MN during the summer of 2020. With the additional stress of the Covid pandemic, we wanted a school that took appropriate precautions, while allowing our kids to continue to develop and grow. CDA has the perfect balance we needed. One of our kids is in the Infant room. Kristi and her team are amazing! Our son loves going to school and we have peace of mind knowing they are taking great care of him. Our second child is in the Preschool class. Sam and her team keep our…

“Our baby was born few weeks after the Pandemic started. Despite being very happy with our choice of daycare, we were extremely nervous to send him outside the home. Ultimately he went and it’s been great. There have been a few cases amongst the teachers in different rooms but nothing has spread to the children due to diligent cleaning and mask-wearing policies. We probably don’t know the teachers as well as we would in a non-pandemic world but we know the class leads fairly well and feel that they do a great job with our son. They are extremely accommodating;…

“We chose CDA after meeting Dawn and hearing her genuine passion for and love for the babies and the work she does. Our first son has moved up to the toddler room and we gladly enrolled our second son in the infant room recently. Both our boys come home with smiles on their faces every day. Our oldest tells us about the phone he has, his activities, and his friends (which includes his teachers)! The teachers have not only been wonderful to our boys, they’ve been a wonderful resource for us as new parents. They welcome all questions and often…

“The teachers are amazing! They personalize the care and education based on our daughter’s personality and developmental stage. I love seeing the grin on her face when I drop her off and her excitement when she sees her teachers and friends. Children’s Discovery has been the perfect fit for our child. I recommend anyone looking for a genuine and nurturing center to establish care at Children’s Discovery – there is no better fit!” Alina Mother of an Infant

March 2, 2021

“We have been so happy with both our children at CDA! We started our children in the infant classroom and our oldest is now in preschool. All of the teachers truly care about the children and our kids are so happy to go to school each day. Overall, the staff has a very low turnover rate, so we have loved having both our children have the same teachers. They have learned so much and we have learned various activities to keep our kids learning and entertained at home. We also love the constant communication and updates we get throughout the…

“We recently welcomed our first child, Carter, almost one year ago (March 2020). My husband and I started looking for daycare right when we first became pregnant. With Children’s Discovery being incredibly close to my work, it was one of our first choices to look at. We knew it was the one! We toured two other centers but loved CDA best. They adore our son and take exceptionally great care of him on his three full day a week schedule. He barely takes his naps sometimes because he’s always having so much fun! Dawn leads a great infant room team!…

“After having our daughter at a different daycare for 6 months we decided to tour CDA, and I could feel the difference in the environment as soon as I walked in the doors. The classrooms all seemed so well managed, happy, inviting, and organized. Our child has been so happy since joining CDA, I have never picked her up without seeing her engaging with the other children or teachers with a giant smile on her face. The teachers have excellent communication with the parents, and they are so warm and caring. Within two weeks our daughter came home using the…

“CDA has been more than we could have ever imagined in a child care center. The teachers truly love what they do and they love the kids. We feel great sending our son to a place where he is taken care of like he was at home and where he is learning and making friends. We love that we get daily updates and that the teachers and aides always keep us informed about what our son learns and does at school. We love CDA!” Nicole from White Bear Lake Mother of Miles, Infant

“We are so happy to send our children to Children’s Discovery. Both of our children had the pleasure of being in the infant room on up. We are so happy with how well they have done. Helping our oldest learn so many new skills and care for our infant from birth to walking, especially during this pandemic. Despite the difficulty, they have worked hard to keep the facility safe and continue to care for our children. 3 years later, the infant teachers remain the same and still touch base with our preschooler. We are so happy to have our kids…

“From the moment we walked in the doors at our initial tour to the first day of dropping our baby off, I knew we had picked the right daycare center! Everyone was kind and said hello, the center was clean, and all the kids looked like they were having so much fun! Drop-offs and pick-ups are easy and organized. Our baby gets to be with other kids, play, and learn developmentally appropriate things. We are very happy with our choice of Children’s Discovery Academy and would definitely recommend it to other parents!” Jasmine from Maplewood Mother of Penelope, Infant

“My wife and I have been extremely impressed with CDAs professionalism, knowledge, and kindness. They take great care of our child and we look forward to utilizing their services throughout our child’s life.” Mike from White Bear Lake Father of Miles, Infant

“We recently started our first child in the Children’s Discovery Academy infant room and couldn’t be happier with our choice. We settled on Children’s Discovery Academy after the daycare search process because we could tell the teachers had real genuine passion and love for helping children learn and watching them grow! All of the teachers helped us navigate our anxieties those first few weeks with great insight, communication and enthusiasm for seeing our son! We get their early each day and even the cook loves seeing our son smile each morning when he arrives! We are very thankful we found…

“I am a live in auntie and have watched Lizzie’s development with CDA over 4 years as well as the new start of baby Evie this winter. I am also a former preschool teacher and professional nanny so have experienced many children in a variety of childcare situations, and currently a professor of anthropology. CDA does an outstanding job. Well trained, professional caregivers and teachers will care and challenge your child every step of the way while maintaining fun and excitement. Their commitment to always improving diversity and teaching the kids to be loving, thoughtful, respectful friends is remarkable. Lizzie…

“The staff at Children’s Discovery have gone above and beyond to accommodate for my child’s specific needs. When struggling through some difficult medical issues, I was fully supported and they went above and beyond to make sure his care and comfort were a top priority. He does not only receive, hugs, love, and learning. He gets real time experience with teaching sharing, patience and communication skills. The infant team is amazing!” Amy from White Bear Lake Mother of Callen, Infant

“When I first signed up for CDA I was extremely nervous. My son was 8 months and it was our first time with a daycare. CDA did a great job easing both my son and I into the program. They did a great job with him! Although our stay was short lived, I’d go back to CDA in a heart beat!” Mackenzie from White Bear Lake Mother of Devion, Infant

February 6, 2019

“We thoroughly researched local childcare options prior to the birth of our son. CDA was the only place that we found to have high enough standards that gave us confidence to entrust them with the care of our infant. Then, when we toured the facility and met staff, we were sold. We know our son is being given great care and have already seen the developmental advancements he has made since starting at CDA. Not to mention how happy and content he is when we do drop-off/pick-up. You can tell it’s a place he feels comfortable and that’s priceless.” Courtney…

“When my husband and I toured the Children’s Discovery Academy, we immediately knew this facility would be the top on our list. The space is very warm and welcoming. We loved that the hallways and room have a classroom feel. When taking into consideration cost, space, accessibility, and staff, it was an easy final choice to sign up with Children’s Discovery. Being a first time parent, I was so incredibly nervous once the day arrived to drop off our son. This nervousness subsided quickly when we saw the quality of care provided. Having the Daily Connect app available was very…
